Classroom Yoga for Kids was designed with your school setting in mind: no yoga mats or getting down on the floor required. All poses can be done either standing or with a chair...and with shoes on! Detailed, clear, and cute visual supports and (and accompanying animal partners) help reinforce the learning of each mindful yoga pose. Perfect for your Calm Corner, Take a Break Station, Trauma Informed Classroom and Social Emotional Learning Curriculum.
Incorporating yoga into the classroom can be done in as little as a couple minutes per day, is a quiet activity, can work wonders with transitions, and helps to shift chaotic energy into peaceful energy. When students slow down and pay attention to their movement, physical sensations in their body, and breathing, it helps them to move out of a reactive state into a receptive state, which also means they are more ready to focus, learn and make better decisions in whatever context they find themselves in.
Yoga is wonderful - and fun - coping skill; practicing yoga can improve self-control, self-awareness, mental focus, and even memory.
