Kids Yoga for 3-9 year olds incorporates a mixture of yoga basics in a fun and engaging way for their energetic minds! Activities are structured accordingly for each age group to ensure their safety for particular poses and games. Parental or guardian supervision required for these classes.
Here is a general structure:
We begin with ‘Welcome Time’. This helps to set the tone for class so they have a general idea of what we’ll be doing for the day. This is also a time for students to introduce themselves to each other and talk about why they are here, their favorite thing to do, what they know about yoga, etc!
Fun ‘Breathing Exercises’ such as trying to sound like Darth Vadar, Volcano Breaths and Rainbow Breath.
‘Sun Salutation’. During this time, they learn the postures of sun salutation, including the breathing basics for each movement.
‘Active Movement’ activities such as Freeze Dance, Follow the Leader or Sledding.
‘Theme Poses’. This is an opportunity to teach some basic yoga poses! Yoga Pose Cards are used during this time for visual help.
‘Game Time’. This is a favored part of class because ALL kids love to play games! An example is “Red Light, Green Light”, “Yogi Says” (Simon Says), or Pose Challenge.
‘Partner/Group Challenges’ such as Elevator or Double Down Dog.
‘Balance and Inversion Ideas’ such as Tree Pose, Eagle or Bridge Pose.
‘Community Closing’. This is a time that all the kids do an activity together to encourage being part of a community together.
‘Final Stillness’ to help them leave in a calm state.
