Kid’s Yoga Cards for the perfect Yoga Flow

Beautiful and unique yoga pose images, descriptions, and instructions on exactly how to teach a Yoga Flow, a specifically curated sequence of yoga poses that you can do with your kids or students every single day.

Yoga teacher with little public school teaching experience figures out the key to an effective and engaging Yoga Flow: the perfect way to teach kids yoga sequences and keep them focused, calm, and healthy during any part of the day.

Six years ago, I took my first training to become a kids yoga teacher. I loved it so much that I took another training right after, then decided to jump right into to teaching kids yoga wherever I could. I was fortunate enough to find a full-time job teaching kids yoga at a nearby public charter school within six months.

I was so excited to share with these kids all the yoga and games I had learned through my training and initial experience. I was convinced it would help them learn and focus and that they would love it right away.

All of my training gave me great ideas and advice on how to teach yoga to kids, and what games to play, but I had a few big problems…

  • Nothing I had learned had prepared me to teach kids who weren’t willing to learn yoga
  • I didn’t know how to manage classroom behaviors (which can range from mild unwillingness to dramatic and unsafe aggression). 
  • I had no idea how to keep kids engaged and having fun when half the kids weren’t listening.
  • I had no resources for students of color… there were almost NO images of kids doing yoga who weren’t white. How could I convince them yoga was for them, too, when the kids didn’t look like them?

 

Flash forward a couple of years, more kids yoga training, tons of resources purchased… a few things worked here and there.

But I still had trouble with consistency. And if you know anything about kids, you know that keeping a consistent schedule, similar routines, and recognizable elements of their day is important to their learning and success.

Reading a yoga book here and there worked, playing a yoga game sometimes kept their attention, but I needed something that held their attention and kept them learning quickly, especially from the beginning of class.

 

One day, almost in a haze of frustration in how NOT calm my class was, I stumbled upon a routine that worked. I don’t know why I did it, I don’t know how it came to me, but I just needed the right amount of noise and some rhythm.

I needed the class to FEEL like a yoga class, but have the energy of a dance class. I needed the connectedness and syncopation of a real yoga sequence.

I figured out a sequence and a method of teaching that I have since refined, modified, tried with many different ages of kids, and realized it completely works.

THIS IS WHAT I CALL THE YOGA FLOW.

Introducing: Kid's Yoga Cards for the Perfect Yoga Flow!

 

The Kid’s Yoga Cards for the Perfect Yoga Flow were created by me to use with kids or students to do a specific sequence called a Yoga Flow. I found an amazing artist who created beautiful images for each of the poses in my standard Yoga Flow.

  

I wanted images with students of color, in various types of clothing and dress and hairstyle to better reflect the students that I work with every day.

 

The Kids Yoga Cards for the Perfect Yoga Flow includes yoga pose images, descriptions, and teaching tips for the exact poses in a perfect Yoga Flow, a specifically curated sequence of yoga poses that you can do with your kids or students every single day.

 

A Yoga Flow can be used as a warm-up, the main lesson for a class, a morning routine, a brain break, a cool down, or a relaxing routine before bedtime.

 

The pose cards and images are completely unique to Kumarah Yoga, they are not seen anywhere else!

Doing the perfect yoga flow takes more than just knowing the sequence of poses to keep kids energized, focused and loving yoga. It also requires knowledge of how to teach kids in a way that gets them excited to learn.

Bonus #2:  Positive and Mindful Language Teaching Prompts

One of the biggest learning curves for many people as new teachers is figuring out how to talk to kids.

You might know how to communicate with them one on one, but it’s very different giving directions to a whole group of them.

What do you say to get them to listen?

How do you teach yoga in a way that gets them to think and be mindful and help them feel good about themselves?

In this Bonus, Positive and Mindful Teaching Prompts, you will learn teaching and language strategies that are beneficial for classes, larger groups, and even when talking to kids one on one.

You’ll get specific examples of reinforcing, reminding and redirecting language that works to build positive classroom culture and helps manage unwanted behaviors.

Help your children and students develop the confidence and self-esteem that yoga provides when you build them up with your teaching language.

You can see the work, love and experience Maia put into these cards. A great resource for parents, teachers, and anyone wanting to share yoga, in a fun positive way, with the children in their lives.

I am so glad I found Kumarah Yoga online. I love the yoga flow cards – the drawings are great. They are cute and fun and perfect for kids of all ages. I especially like the diversity represented. I also appreciate the literature-based yoga lessons. I am a former elementary school teacher, and I love using children’s picture books in my classes. I’ve found Kumarah Yoga to be one of the most valuable resources I have for teaching dynamic kids yoga classes!

This is one of several things I have purchased from Kumarah. I am never disappointed! I love to teach yoga to kids, and sometimes I don’t have time to come up with new ideas and lessons. These cards are so helpful!

Who Created the Yoga Flow?

Hi! My name is Maia, and I’m the creator of Kumarah Yoga and the Yoga Flow. I started teaching yoga 7 years ago after I completed my 220-hour Yoga Teacher Training from Green Lotus Yoga and Healing Center in Minnesota, and the Yoga Center Minneapolis.

I attended two additional kids yoga teacher trainings through both studios in the next year, plus I took three modules of the Yoga Calm teacher training and completed the online Mindful Schools training in mindfulness for kids. All together I have over 320 hours of yoga training experience, with 80 of those being specific to teaching kids.

 

My first year of teaching kids yoga I taught at a private preschool and kindergarten center. I taught kids as young as 18 months up to grade school students in a storytelling style of kids yoga.

 

I started teaching yoga to kids full time at a public charter elementary school in Minneapolis 5 years ago. I have my own classroom that is fully dedicated to movement, yoga, and mindfulness. I teach five 45-minute classes a day to grades K-4, and in all I have over 340 students throughout the year.

 

I absolutely love my job and I have been so lucky to teach and do what I love every day.

 

I started the Kumarah Yoga website over a year ago when I realized how much time I used to spend searching and searching for advice and ideas for how to teach yoga to kids. I had received the formal training, but still not quite enough resources for what I really needed.

 

I decided that after my first four years creating my own lessons and coming up with new ways that worked for teaching the populations that I teach, I was ready to start sharing my knowledge with the world. Kumarah Yoga and the Yoga Flow are the results!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Yoga Flow?

Yoga Flow is a sequence of 22 different Yoga poses that you can do with your kids or students. The Yoga Flow sequence is fast-paced and rhythmic.

It can be done at home, in a classroom, in a studio, at a camp setting, wherever!

Doing a Yoga Flow takes more than just knowing the poses, which is why I have written and included many additional pages of content on how to teach it effectively, what language to use, and how to encourage kids of all ages.

Can you teach Yoga Flow to Kids of any age?

Yes!  The Yoga Flow works best with kids between the ages of 6 and 12, but it can be adapted to work very successfully with kids as young as 4 and as old as 15. The most important part of doing a Yoga Flow is the amount of enthusiasm you put into it, and the language you use with your kids to teach it.
