Story and Stretch:

A Guide to Teaching Kids Yoga Using Gospel Stories

Story and Stretch: Narrative Yoga for Kids offers a framework in which to lead children in exploring scriptural truths through body movement. The Gospels are filled with embodied, tangible practices. From the Eucharist to Jesus' miles of walking to His act of spitting in mud, making a paste, and putting it on a man's eyes to heal him, the root of Christianity is embodied and tangible. However, many Christians today lack an embodiment of their faith.

The ten Story and Stretch lesson plans included in this book combine Gospel stories with the healing practice of yoga, to offer children of all ages the opportunity to experience their bodies as sacred places to dialogue with God. Each lesson contains a different breathing practice, mindfulness activity, Gospel story, sequence of yoga poses designed to recreate the story, suggestions for relaxation time, and discussion questions.

Story and Stretch was created by Michel Le Gribble-Dates, mother, certified yoga instructor, and former elementary teacher and Director of Children's Ministries.
