Kids yoga: Mid-morning stretch

Mary Humphrey's book, "Kids Yoga Book of Feelings," helps little ones get in touch with their inner feelings.

The session "Yoga for Kids" gave them an outlet to learn about those feelings.

"My book has all kinds of feelings in it," Humphrey said.

The book puts children in touch with their feelings as they work their way through a variety of yoga poses, she said.

Skaneateles Library was host to Humphrey and four youngsters on Saturday morning where they stretched and practiced poses like little pros. When they weren't acting their ages, the students worked on their breathing, stretching like waterfalls and cats and listening to stories Humphrey told, such as "Living Sunlight."

The class included three 4-year-olds -- Patrick Herr, Katie Combs and Jeb Casler -- and 7-year-old Sophia Casler, who was intently focused on the poses she was learning.

Before ending the first portion of the session, Humphrey taught the children a new word, namaste, which means "the light in me honors the light in you."
