This sequence of 6 yoga poses and breathing exercises is created by a professional yoga teacher and is geared specifically at leading children through a restorative relaxation yoga session. Use these cards for anytime that your children/students are needing to slow their bodies down, or refocus their minds. The exercises can also be used to calm nerves and boost confidence, such as in pre-test situations, or perhaps after a long and taxing day.
What's included in the packet:
-A detailed teaching script for a full yoga relaxation sequence
-Yoga Picture and Instruction Cards (6) with real photographs of the stretches and breathing exercises.
-Positive Affirmations for each of the exercises which can be read aloud by a parent/teacher, or repeated by the students.
-Full-Size Posters (6) of each exercise which can be displayed at stations, or on your electronic handheld device or smart board.
-Tons of tips on how to use and teach the exercises, from a professional yoga teacher.
Multiple formats are included in the packet. Print the half-sheet yoga cards for student use, or display the full-size poster pages on your smart board or favorite electronic tablet.
