One may wonder how a kids yoga class differs from an adult yoga class?

First, we start with an opening mindful game. Maybe Silent Ball.

Then we use the Hoberman Sphere for our breathing practice. Students love taking turns leading this exercise.

Of course there are the yoga poses most people recognize, like chair pose and child’s pose, but there are also a lot of fun poses that engage kids further, such as Butterfly, Frog and Woodchopper.   

Also, students love partner and group poses.

Sometimes students even invent their own poses.

We also play games that incorporate yoga poses, such as Musical Mats (kind of like

musical chairs), Gratitude Pick-up Sticks, and Mindful listening. 

Students learn about and practice the movement of the breath with the parachute and taking turns showing yoga poses under the parachute!

Class wraps up with a quick inspiring story on topics of kindness, gratitude, and mindfulness.

Then we finish with a guided relaxation/meditation.
