Adventure Asana "The Rainy Day"
Yoga Stories and Poses for Kids of All Ages
Adventure Asana teaches children yoga by taking them on a fun adventure that flows through a series of yoga poses (asanas). For each yoga pose there is a children's image illustration and playful alignment poem. "The Rainy Day" stars a diverse set of characters who set out on a journey and support each other: the Dog (Downward Dog), the Roadrunner (Runner's Lunge), the Cat (Cat/Cow), and the Bird (Yogi Squat). You are certain to enjoy all of the the lively and fun images created by Ugandan artist Rodney Kawaayi.
