Yawning Yoga: A new book and bedtime ritual for kids

Yawning yogaCan’t get your kid to stop asking for another drink of water after lights out?

Have a friend who’s nodding off every time you have lunch together because of a monster-spooked toddler?

Yawning Yoga, a new bedtime book by Laurie Jordan, a New York yoga instructor and creator of Little Sprouts Yoga, tries a new approach to soothing a child to sleep: yoga.

It’s like Go the F**k to Sleep with better karma.

“By incorporating yoga into the bedtime routine, children of all ages will be stretching, twisting, and breathing their way into dreamland,” Jordan says on her website.
