Say Namaste to Meddy Teddy, a rising star in the yogi world, in his debut picture book!
Media and social media sensation Meddy Teddy is a cuddly, yoga pant-clad, completely poseable plush bear that introduces meditation and mindfulness practices to little yogis. In this first-ever companion book, Meddy encourages readers to try yoga poses as he comes out of hibernation, greets the springtime, and teaches his forest friends how to mindfully get through a variety of situations. On each page, Meddy shows how to execute a pose, including the downward-facing dog, tree pose, the Warrior, and more. The youngest yogis and their families and friends will rejoice as they master each one, and work up to completing the whole sequence!
Yoga and mindfulness have proven benefits for kids: they help them become aware of their own bodies and deal with feelings of anxiety, frustration, confusion, fear, and sadness in a healthy way. Meddy Teddy is perfect for introducing kids (and grown-ups) of all ages to the practice of yoga.
