We are thrilled to announce that Pownal Street Press will be publishing Yoga Adventures for Little Explorers by Megan McDougall. With illustrations by Hayley Lowe, this book guides your littles into the movements and breath-work of yoga with a fun and creative story.

A journey into the heart of imagination, Yoga Adventures for Little Explorers introduces children to the asanas in a fun and playful way. Whether we are standing tall like a tree, jumping around like a gorilla, or stretching up like a cobra, this book brings us on a journey through the meditation, breath-work and flow of a family yoga class. Written and illustrated by two children’s yoga teachers, the whimsical style of art and text sets parents up for a fun, family practice that will leave us humming a jungle tune, all the way home from the studio. Yoga Adventures for Little Explorers will be available on May 6, 2025.

“I’ve known Megan for many years, and it’s an honour be publishing her first children’s book. Not only is she a amazing yoga teacher, she’s also an inspiring leader and mom. The combination of her story and Haley’s beautiful illustrations will make this book a delight for little ones.”

Genevieve Loughlin, Publisher
