Shakta Khalsa


Fly Like a Butterfly, one of the first and most well-known children’s yoga books, has charmed its way into the lives of hundreds of thousands of homes and schools since its initial publication in 1997.


A comprehensive collection of yoga, meditation, and breathing games presented in a joyous, creative way that is guaranteed to entice children from young to youth into a fun-filled romp with yoga.  Along with the giggles, they will learn self-regulations skills that will serve them into adulthood.


Over 160 duo-tone photos of children between the ages of 3-9.



“Parents with young children will quickly discover this gem on library shelves.  Khalsa, a Kundalini teacher, helps parents get youngsters involved in healthy activities by introducing them to animals and adventures through exercise like the spider stretch, bear walk, or fish pose; controlled breathing; and even relaxation techniques.”

-Library Journal


“The author has taken the task of teaching to heart in that she demonstrates a commitment to yoga and a knowledge of how to entice children to learn.  Rather than providing a monotonous list of postures, Khalsa uses the poses to tell a story—one is about a mountain, others take us on an animal adventure.  Instructions for poses are imbedded in the story lines.  Another terrific feature of this book is that it addresses the mind.  Why not ask a child to go inward and explore what is there?  Why not introduce the teacher within?  My six-year-old daughter enjoyed breathing away thoughts she didn’t like, and we both liked the idea having a cookie under the mediation seat to remind us that meditation is sweet.”
