Yoga Books for Boys: Dinosaurs, Rocket Ships, Ninjas, and Dragons


Below are some of my favorite yogabooks that I have used when teaching yoga to my now 8 year old son. By no means is this list complete, as there are dozens of different books for boys and girls. But the goal is getting the kids to have fun with various easy-to-follow yoga poses. Teaching kids yoga sets them up for better habits of flexibility, fitness, and self-confidence.


1.) Dinosaur Yoga by Mariam Gates

This book introduces children to the joys and benefits of yoga―through dinosaurs! Triceratops, Pterodactyl, T-Rex, and others learn to bend, stretch, and breathe through a yoga flow. Instead of being sad, mad, or frustrated when things aren’t going their way, the dinosaurs practice yoga to feel better. The book features a parents’ guide to the depicted postures and a glossary of dinosaurs at the back. With this book, kids can stomp, stretch, and snort their way to skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
