Yoga is a language spoken all over the world and means many things to different people and cultures. It even has it's own carousel of yoga languages - Ashtanga, Vinyassa, Jivamukti, Kundalini - different ways to yoga, but all have the same positive benefits for your health.
For my son and his friends, yoga has helped to develop their motor skills, calm and center them, help them to be aware of their bodies and improve their confidence. Lara Land of Harlem's Land Yoga has developed an ebook app, Chloe the Yogi: The Amusement Park, the first in a series of five, that mirror the experience of a children's yoga class. The story, featuring and animated character named Chloe, helps kids to learn yoga poses and reinforces the emotional support that children get through stretching, breathing, and role playing.
The app launches today, September 7th, with a special reading by Lara Land to the Harlem Community as part of the Harlem 4 Kids Saturday story time series at the Harlem Center PAL Building, 441 Manhattan Avenue. Event begins at 11am.
