Kid’s Yoga Stories
From ABC’s to ACT’s
What if there was a way to help kids stay active and use energy while focusing their attention at the same time?
There is, and it’s called yoga. But not just any yoga, yoga with a purpose, a structure, and set of expectations.
Yoga for kids that is still fun, intriguing, fast paced, and meaningful.
When I first started teaching yoga to kids I had all sorts of crazy fun ideas. Games, stories, activities, crafts… I had grandiose expectations of the in-depth conversations and insightful meditations we would get into on a daily basis.
As it turns out, I was in way over my head.
Despite having a solid background in teaching and childcare, I found out quickly that teaching kids yoga and mindfulness, especially in a large group school setting, is HARD.
I started out working with elementary kids and realized immediately that yoga class can often times be a big mess of children not interested in yoga doing whatever they want.
Kids not listening, no structure, no set of expectations, no way to get them learning poses quickly. I had plans for them to create and build sequences but they didn’t even know what a pose was, let alone a sequence.
I had to take it to a different level and give them the tools they needed quickly and with regularity.
And from here I created a little something I call the Kids Yoga Flow.
It helped me:
- teach kids yoga with confidence
- regulate behavior in the classroom
- get through tons of poses a day
- give kids the much needed confidence to try new poses
