About The Bendy Bookworm
Hey! I’m Danielle @thebendybookworm and I absolutely love love love books and yoga.
Growing up my mom would walk us to the library where we’d load up the carriage with piles of books. Before we’d leave, I’d always make a quick stop at the table by the door. Reaching my hand up to feel around for the plate of cookies, I wasn’t tall enough to see. I loved the library! (I’m sure that getting a cookie every time I went didn’t hurt…)
A few years back I grabbed a part time position at my home library in New Jersey while I was finishing my undergrad. I remembered the walks with my mom, the sugar cookies with bright sprinkles, and the programs where I met my first friends. I remembered my mom reading library books before bed. I decided right then that I wanted to share these memories with as many people as possible, so I became a Children’s Librarian.
With my RYT certification, I began finding ways to bring my yoga practice to the community I serve as a librarian. I cultivated programs that combined yoga poses and stories. I started my programs as a way to mesh my two passions. But they’ve developed into incredible education resources; teaching all ages literacy skills through the practice of yoga!
My hope is to share these programs so that more and more people will become enthusiastic about literacy by practicing yoga!
