Yoga for children and the young at heart - Aristotle's Journey into Happiness - (A family yoga classic)

 

Hi there, I am planning to get this 78 page classic family yoga book, illustrated and written by myself, self-published. It shows kids and adults (age 5 to 100) how to keep our bodies tuned, healthy and aligned through yoga. Aristotle, the positive and uplifting monkey, shows us how to do the classic postures and sequences in an uplifting and vigorous way. Aristotle won't let the monkey-mind get in the way.

I've approached several publishers but the New Zealand market for this type of book is too small (getting an agent is like getting a full time job). I've used "Aristotle's Jouney into Happiness" in many of my yoga classes both in NZ as well as overseas. Grown-ups, school-teachers, and kids all find juicy bits they can relate to and groove along with. General response from non-yogis is: "I want to have a copy this book, it makes me want to try yoga". This is a joyful and quaint book that translates complex ideas into simple and easy to follow yoga steps. The book is endorsed by some fabulous people who see its vision and world-wide appeal. Danny Paradise, a long-time yoga teacher to many a rising yoga star (Sting, Madonna, Pavarotti . . . ) wrote the foreword, "Bibi's visionary and masterful new children's/family book is full of ancient wisdom, beautiful drawings and the joy, happiness, independence and personal empowerment that Yoga can bring to everyone. What better way to help heal the world and restore the balance than to introduce the teachings of yoga to the youngest generation?" Simply put, this book is meant to inspire and keep a smile on everyone's face! To give you an idea of the book in action, below is an image of the title as well as a Facebook link.

Aristotle the Monkeyogi

 

About Bibi and Aristotle

I began teaching Yoga to kids and teachers in Tokyo in 2001. Coming from a primary school teaching background and working at international schools, the idea of bringing yoga to kids and teachers was well received by the heads of the schools as well as its staff! In 2003 I completed my White Lotus teaching Certificate - https://www.whitelotus.org/ - and began teaching at various schools, studios and Aristotle the monkey came into being. This Book project evolved over 4 years and was well received at the Maui Writers conference. I've taught hundreds of children of many ages and some of them have actually turned into yoga teachers themselves. Parents of children and the children themselves have shown appreciation via stories and letters as well as personal testimonials. As an artist and writer, yoga has always helped ground me and given me balance and inspiration when executing my creativity and dreams. Teaching yoga to kids of all ages has also brought a ton of beautiful, genuine people my way from all over the globe. "Yoga for children and the young at heart - Aristotle's Journey into Happiness" is endorsed by some of the most respected and funky yoga-teachers in the world, including creatives who appreciate my vision, such as David O'Donnell from the Drama Department at Victoria University as well as various other NZ creatives. I'm thankful to all of them and most of all love the kids who bring their ideas and bundles of energy into the class every term. Bringing this book out in paper-back means the world to me and it is the parents who've constantly pushed and encouraged me to publish the book in paperback. I thank you all and enjoy the ride along with Aristotle!!! Love Bibi and Aristotle and the 'team'.
