One of the five principles of Yoga is a proper diet. Yesterday we learned about Go, Slow and Whoa foods. The children made "smoothies" with this file folder activity while we talked about the healthy ingredients. Later made real smoothies, which the children loved!

Easy Pose, aka "criss-cross applesauce", is a pose that calms and balances. It also strengthens the back and spine and encourages good posture. When doing this pose, it's good to have a yoga blanket placed under the sitting bones for extra support and comfort. Go on....STRIKE A POSE! 😊

Freeze Dance | Freeze Song | Freeze Dance for Kids | Music for Kids | The Kiboomers

This is a new favorite of mine! It's the perfect instant activity for kids as they enter the class. This can also be used for a little cognition ignition! Get those brains going with dancing, skipping and twirling. End with 3 cycles of slow deep inhales and exhales to calm them down. You'll be glad you did!

7 Simple Instant Activities for PE

Instant activities are used to get students moving as soon as they enter the classroom. I used them a lot during the summer for a few camps that I hosted.

Is it just me, or did Summer just seem to fly by? It's hard to believe that it's almost time for school to start. The beginning of the school year for me, means the beginning of Fall kids Yoga & movement sessions. I've been spending a lot of time WITHIN, to create the most exciting and engaging classes EVER! Joseph Joubert said, "To teach is to learn twice", and I find this to be true. With each school that I go to, each child that I teach and each heart that I touch, I always learn something new. I learn more about myself, the children that I teach and the world around me. I'm excited about the upcoming school year and all of the things to come!

Lizard 🦎 on a Rock/Child’s Pose Lounge variation is a such a relaxing partner pose. The person on the bottom, who in this case is my daughter, receives a nice stretch in the lower back. The person on the top, my daughter’s BFF Gabby, receives a nice stretch for the arms and abs as well as a nice opening in the chest.

This is one of my favorite crafts to do with my Yoga kiddos! During class, we talked about affirmations and how they're like magic words. They provide revitalizing energy.
Children made affirmation flowers. In the center of each flower, the children wrote the words "I AM". On the petals, they wrote they're positive words (friendly, smart, huggable, funny, caring etc.).
