When Ajeet Khalsa began offering children’s yoga training back in 2014, she called it “Dancing Spider Yoga,” and it starred a single imaginary friend named Dechi. Ajeet wasn’t aware of it then, but the whole fantastical world of Color Me Yoga was there in seed. Today, Color Me Yoga is a coloring and activity book designed to take youngsters pose-by-pose, rhyme-by-rhyme up mountain peaks and off lily pads into an unforgettable world of embodied experience. Color Me Yoga proceeds through 19 poses each presented with an instructional rhyme, coloring page, and caption to clarify the movement. The coloring pages bring a special sort of interactivity to the class, as imaginary creatures realized by the incomparable Bazil Zerinsky await to amuse, soothe, and guide newcomers to the practice of yoga. With a zoo of new friends along for the journey, kids learn foundational exercises like Baby’s Pose, Cobbler’s Pose, Tuning In, and Peaceful Breathing alongside funny bone–tickling new ones like Dancing Spider, Fruit Soup, and Washing Machine Pose. With Color Me Yoga, the teacher does all the poses with the children, leading them into song, movement, and through transitions. Thus, the book provides a ready-made, thematic set for use in early childhood education, elementary classrooms, family living rooms, and even during library story times. Try Color Me Yoga with the little ones you care for—and who care so well for you!
