How do we raise thoughtful, compassionate, emotionally healthy children? It’s a question many parents and caregivers ask in this fast-paced world of smart phones, social media, and the go-go-go pace of modern life.
We do it with a daily yoga, breathing or mindfulness practice of course! Here is your daily practice to do with your kids, friends, family or students of ALL AGES. Enjoy!
Children who are read aloud to get a head start in language and literacy. It increases their vocabulary and opportunity for comprehension practice. Combine that with yoga and you have children moving and stretching their bodies while increasing their focus and balance while having fun! When kids are moving it helps enhance their understanding and retention of what they have learned. This is called kinesthetic learning and it is perfect to use with those busy wiggly kids that need to move their bodies during or after those long school days of sitting.

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.
