Partner Yoga for Kids Class

What a blast it was to be back at Athleta for another fun kids yoga class. This time leading a Partner Yoga for Kids class. We warmed up our bodies with exercises to get our hearts pumping. Then got ready for our partner and group poses.

We got into out Partner Poses using our Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards.

The yoga cards were perfect as we worked on mastering the 4 challenge levels with the included partner poses.

We continued with some fun team building group yoga poses with our Down Dog Tunnel. The kids loved it and did great!

We closed class with a Stillness and Savasana and with a few deep cleansing breaths. If you are looking to try out some more partner poses, get our Kids Yoga Partner Pose lesson plan or see our tips on partner poses here.

Yoga and Art Therapy in the School

What a blessing it has been to lead kids yoga classes this summer with the Children and Family Urban Movement.  CFUM’s mission is to create a community that supports the potential of children, youth and families through educational success, healthy living, and community engagement.

Introducing the kids to yoga and mindfulness has filled my heart. They had so much joy in trying new things.

As a special treat, each child was able to personalize their very own donated yoga mat.

Being a Writer School Presentation and Kids Yoga

It was such an honor and so much fun to be included in the Iowa Association of School Librarians 2017 Conference. I got the opportunity to showcase Go Go Yoga for Kids, including our new Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards and talk about our Being a Writer school presentation.

I got the opportunity to meet several Iowa authors and talk about our resources and what we could do to help Iowa schools and students be interested and engaged in reading. What a lovely group of ladies. I am hoping to see a lot more of them!
