What is Yoga, and how can I use it in my life? The word, Yoga, means “union,” or “connection.” We connect breath, mind, and body in a Yoga practice. In this 45-minute lesson, students explore basic Yoga poses aligned with a reading of the beautiful book, I Am Yoga, by Susan Verde. The how-tos of Yogic breathing are introduced, and a game of Toppling Trees helps to stress the value of quiet time in life. The lesson can be taught by anybody (you don't have to be a Yoga teacher), and the components are easily broken down to be taught over the course of 5 days. This makes it convenient to fit into your classroom schedule. Also included are a mandala printable and a take-home newsletter.
