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.

Anytime you can use a simple bag to “draw out a yoga pose” creates a lot of anticipation for this age group.

Stillness and Savasana definitely becomes a favorite part of any kids yoga class. Be as still as a starfish or quiet as a mouse in this pose. Kids love it. Get your tips here on how to easily get kids still and quiet.

Teaching Yoga for Kids Ideas

Congratulations on taking the first steps toward changing kids lives in such a positive way! The benefits of yoga for kids are huge and Go Go Yoga Kids: Empower Kids for Life Through Yoga wants to help you plan and be prepared to teach yoga to kids. Be sure to read our previous post on ideas on where to find places to teach yoga to kids.

Setting Up Your First Yoga Classes for Kids:kids yoga class

When you are just starting out teaching kids yoga at a new location, it is good to offer a 6-8 week session. This is good for several reasons.

  • It doesn’t commit parents, the director, or yourself to a long term commitment.
  • This gives kids an opportunity to try something new, learn new skills, and recognize the benefits of yoga. They will become so hooked on yoga and will want to continue learning more after that first session!
  • It gives you, as the instructor, the opportunity to step back and evaluate how things went. What would you change for next time? Did the age groups work well? Evaluating after each class helps you improve, change, and build on what you have learned.

Stay tuned for the book release of Go Go Yoga Kids: Empower Kids for Life Through Yoga. This comple resource will have everything needed to know to go and start your kids yoga classes! In the meantime, for even more  yoga  games, tips and lesson plans sign up for our newsletter.

The kids yoga teaching opportunities are definitely out there and will take a little effort, but the benefit for you (and the kids!) is lifelong. The following are a few of the places that offer yoga for kids or can be contacted about leading classes or workshops.

When I first wanted to teach yoga for kids, I started looking for locations to offer classes. I began with places where I already had a connection. One was a local health club where I was a member and the other was a nearby preschool that I’d had experience with. I called and set up a time to meet with the director of the youth programs. I was prepared with what I was going to say and brought along samples of the lessons I would use.

Good kids yoga teachers are a special find, and word will travel fast that you are equipped and passionate about reaching all different types of children through yoga. You are in a position to positively influence kids through yoga and introduce them to many lifelong skills and benefits. Read more here about making a difference in kids’ lives through yoga.
