Yoga and Story Time: "The Chinese Emperor’s New Clothes"

Please note: Ying Chang Compestine will not be presenting at this event. Our Children and Young Adult Events Coordinator Karen Schumann will be reading and doing yoga with attendees.

The Chinese Emperor's New Clothes Cover ImageMing Da is only nine years old when he becomes the emperor of China, and his three advisors take advantage of him by stealing his stores of rice, gold, and precious stones. But Ming Da has a plan.

With the help of his tailors, he comes up with a clever idea to outsmart his devious advisors: He asks his tailors to make “magical” new clothes for him. Anyone who is honest, the young emperor explains, will see the clothes’ true splendor, but anyone who is dishonest will see only burlap sacks. The emperor dons a burlap sack, and the ministers can’t help but fall for his cunning trick.

Come decompress as we read a story and introduce the concepts of balance, breath, and focus. Leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day!
