How to Use Yoga in the School Classroom

The wonderful preschool age is one of my favorites stages for kids. This age group is imaginative, creative, and always up for trying something new. When I was asked to speak and exhibit at the Iowa Early Childhood Conference about Using Yoga in the Preschool Classroom, of course I had to say yes. I have so much to share about how to use yoga with kids at home or school.

These preschool early childhood teachers and directors were ready to learn about how to incorporate yoga into their classroom with yoga poses, games, breathing exercises, lesson plans, and much more.

I love teaching how ordinary props and materials can be used to engage children and get them excited about yoga.

See our recommended kids yoga resources or enroll in our online course Kids Yoga 101: How to Teach Yoga to Kids for hundreds of more ideas on using yoga with kids.

You can also learn more here.

The benefits of using yoga with kids is unbeatable. The good news is, that they are the same benefits for adults. We rocked the Top 9 Yoga Poses for Kids. These poses are perfect for these young and growing bodies.

How to Use a Breathing Ball or Hoberman Sphere With Kids

One of my new  favorite items to use in teaching kids yoga is the Breathing Ball or Hoberman Sphere .  It provides a great visual  for teaching kids to slow down their breath, and take long and even inhales and exhales.  We also talk about how the Breathing Ball is similar to the the work our lungs or diaphragm does.

How to Use a Breathing Ball with Children:

  • As a teacher or leader, model using it together as a whole group. As you stretch the ball out, take a deep long breath, together as a group. Then as you squeeze the ball together, let out a long deep exhale. You can experiment with the pace and show what happens when we breathe in and out too quickly. Talk about the difference in how your body feels when you take short quick breaths compared to long deep breaths.
  • If it is a smaller group, pass the ball around the circle and let each child take turns opening and closing it in time with their breath.
  • The ball is also fun to toss around the circle as it opens and shuts. Have the children participate in a team building and cooperation exercise to see how many times they can catch the ball with out it dropping. This is also a good exercise in building mindfulness.

Section 4 – Yoga Poses for Kids

How to Teach Age Appropriate Yoga Poses

Now we’re getting to the yoga poses. After you utilize your breath work and get your body centered and focused you’re ready to work on some yoga poses. I’m going to show you some fun ways to engage students with poses. Kids love to learn new yoga poses.

Yoga poses are also a great way to differentiate and accommodate for the varied needs and abilities of the kids you’re working with. I like to choose 3 to 5 yoga poses and group them together with a common theme so kids will remember them.

As you introduce each pose ask children what parts of their body they feel working. In your course resources part in part three I have an illustrated kids yoga pose guide. It’s got 45 yoga poses that you can see if you’re not familiar with the yoga poses yourself.

Join our online course and get your illustrated yoga pose guide.

I also love using, the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards. These are a deck of 30 poses. They’re bright and colorful. They include partner poses too that the kids can use and see how the poses are made.

I also love props to introduce yoga poses. The How to Teach Yoga to Kids online course shows favorite yoga props which help introduce the yoga poses with and create anticipation.

Kids love themes  while practicing yoga. In the course, I will show you some themed yoga poses that you would do if you were learning about the ocean, jungle or the zoo. It is fun to see how the poses fit together with the theme which helps the kids better remember and practice the poses.

Included in our How to Teach Yoga to Kids course we’ve got four kids yoga lesson plans that are all themed with yoga poses, the breath work and everything that you need to teach yoga to kids.
