NORA CARPENTER presents YOGA FROG

Join author Nora Carpenter as she presents a story time filled with froggy fun and lots of kids’ yoga!  

Frog loves to practice yoga. And he will inspire kids to enjoy doing yoga, too. Follow Frog's yoga flow, from warming up to cooling down. Start with the mountain and chair poses, then work into giraffe, cat-cow, downward-facing dog, butterfly, and bridge. End with the quieting happy baby and savasana poses to help your muscles relax before going to bed or starting your day. For fans of Yoga Bunny and I Am YogaYoga Frog's simple, meditative text introduces yoga in kid-friendly terms and is complemented by playful yet instructive illustrations by Mark Chambers. Youngsters learn how to start their very own yoga practice--and to have fun while doing so, too!

Join local author and certified yoga instructor Nora Carpenter for an interactive presentation of her picture book, YOGA FROG. Young participants are invited to perform the poses along with Frog as Nora reads the book. Nora will also discuss yoga’s myriad benefits for children, the difference between teaching kids and adult yoga, and offer tips for establishing a yoga practice in a school or home setting, followed by a Q&A.

A CYT who has taught numerous kids and adults yoga classes since 2007, Nora Carpenter holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina with her husband, three young children, and one not-so-young dog.
