Welcome to class! In this hand-illustrated 72-page bundle, 11 Yoga mini-lessons/chapters outline a complete and balanced narrative-based Yoga class for children - from beginning to end:
** The class unfolds according to the traditional Yoga-class progression, including a guided breath exercise, gradual warm-ups, lively standing sequences, a cool down, and a guided whole-body relaxation.
** From the movement of poses - stories, tales, and poems emerge and accompany the chapters: about a lonely prince who wishes for a friend, a young lion who finds his voice despite inner and outer obstacles, a child who makes a surprising and wild discovery while on a journey, and more... Some of these chapters are sold separately as mini-lessons on my TPT store, including: The Bluebird's Song
, The Fire Dragon
, The Lion Who Wouldn't Roar
, A Tale of Two Cats
, and The Four Warriors
** A few chapters are accompanied by narratives for guided practice (e.g. breath centering, final relaxation), and a special chapter opens this bundle with a simple introduction to the practice of Yoga.
** All chapters/stories contain hand-drawn black and white line illustrations of all the poses, for movement guidance and optional coloring. Simple alignment instructions accompany all the poses as well.
** Each chapter concludes with a quick visual summary of the mini Yoga sequence presented. At the end of the bundle, you will also find the 'Class in a Glance' - a complete illustrated visual summary of the entire class' pose-sequence, to allow for easy planning and review.
This material was designed by a certified Yoga teacher and a Speech-Language Pathologist. As you offer this material to your students, you may practice it one story at a time – as if reading a storybook, or cover to cover, as you see fit. For your convenience, this tool is designed in black and white for easy and affordable printing (double-side printing is also possible: flip on the short edge for a book layout, and on the long edge for a calendar-like layout).
Thank for your purchase - I appreciate it and I hope you enjoy this tool!
