Froga Yoga: At the Pond by Hannah Rose Roswell is the story of Froga, a young frog who lives in a pond. Froga is different from the other frogs. He admires all the creatures in his pond and tries to move like them. Whether it is a seagull, a turtle, a bobtail cat, a duck, a snail, or any other animal, Froga tries to move like them. He tries to imitate each one of them. When he looks up and sees a seagull, Froga stands up and bends at his waist with his head down toward his feet. He makes the shape of bird wings with his upper limbs. He bends his knees slightly and lets his head relax and drop lower, imagining he is slowly dropping from the sky. To learn more about Froga’s yoga poses, read the story.

The author incorporates yoga poses into the story through Froga, giving it uniqueness and making it easy for readers to comprehend. She also weaves in many important messages and developmental skills through the book – motor skills, listening skills, breathing exercises, different yoga postures, being imaginative and creative, and self acceptance. The exercises make it a fun and interactive story and it can be used in classrooms for tutors and educators to help students unwind and relax from their books. The yoga poses and breathing exercises are good for children and adults as well and can be tried out at home for relaxation. I did try a few of the poses mentioned in the story. Why don’t you try some and learn the value of unwinding and relaxing?
