Have you ever met someone and within minutes could completely recognize a true heart of gold? Last month while attending the National Kids Yoga Conference, I got the pleasure of meeting Erin Hurley, an elementary school guidance counselor from Virginia.
She is the kind of counselor that any of you would love to have your children work with and learn from. Erin has a kind and creative spirit and truly cares about children.
Erin shared with how she has been using the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards when she works with students in the classroom. She has loved using the pose cards with her classes as they are visual and age appropriate.
Each pose card has a corresponding empowering mantra such as “I am strong” or “I am fair and equal.” This ensures that the students are not only receiving the health benefits of each pose, but also the mental and mindfulness benefits as well.
Erin shared with me one incredible activity and lesson plan that she did with her students that I wanted to pass along. This lesson could be done anytime throughout the school year, but would tie in nicely with the beginning of the school year, Thanksgiving or a kindness theme.
This lesson would work well with children ages 5-11.
Finally, the students were able to put the yoga poses and mantras together to practice and perform. This absolutely made the lesson even more memorable as it ties together so many different types of student learning such as visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning.

Kids love this familiar book by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. It’s repetitive style builds confidence with reading in ages 2-6. I love the bright vivid animal illustrations and how this book ties in perfectly to kids yoga.
