“Exceptionally ‘kid friendly’ in organization and presentation, and highly recommended as a unique addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library children's exercise and fitness collections. Rocket Ship Yoga: An Out-of-This-World Kids Yoga Journey for Breathing, Relaxing and Mindfulness by popular children and family recording artist and globally recognized kids' yoga educator Bari Koral … has beautiful illustrations help guide children ages 3–8 through the poses, along with catchy lyrics that’ll have them engaged with their bodies and minds. This will help boost to their physical balance, coordination and mindfulness in ways that only yoga can.”
—Midwest Book Review
“Blast off! It’s yoga time! It might seem antithetical that a children’s book teaching readers yoga postures and the concept of mindfulness—which focuses on the here and now—would use space and space travel as a backdrop. But the playful conceit makes sense considering this title instructs children (and adults sharing the book with kids) to stretch various body parts—arms, hips—up, out, and toward the sky as it demonstrates and describes poses, relaxation techniques, and measured-breathing exercises. It also empowers kids to soar with their minds and imaginations. Simply written, comprehensible text explains the movements and breathing methods required for each pose (which become more complex as the book advances). Colorful illustrations feature lively, space-themed scenes, affirming a sense of adventure as a young, light-skinned child with a ponytail models different, clearly depicted postures. Backmatter elaborates on the physical and emotional benefits inherent in each included pose.”
“Rocket Ship Yoga is a delightful and heart filled guide that will empower kids of all ages. Author Bari Koral will inspire families to put away the screens and blast off into feeling good in their bodies. I highly recommend Rocket Ship Yoga which is now one of my new favorite children’s yoga books.”
—Melanie Salvatore-August, author of Yoga to Support Immunity
“One of the best ways to help kiddos manage stress is by incorporating yoga into their day-to-day routine. Rocket Ship Yoga is the perfect interstellar introduction to the world of mindfulness.”
“THIS BOOK. It’s amazing! The story is so good, the poses are perfect and I LOVE the Pose Gallery. Vibrant colors, amazing illustrations, fun poses and imagination beyond will have kids on the edge of their space ship and ready to take off! LOVE it so much! I can’t wait to use it in my classes.”
—Kristen Lang, owner of Kidstock Yoga in Woodstock, NY
“In her first book, kids yoga educator and recording artist Bari Koral makes it easy to incorporate yoga and mindfulness into storytime. With this great new book as a tool, anyone can teach yoga to children, regardless of ability and experience!”
—Rebecca Simone Shaknovich, children's librarian and department head at Free Library of Philadelphia
