STUDENTS AND TEACHERS LOVE OUR YOGA FOR KIDS AND CLASSROOMS RESOURCE!
Get your students focused and moving calmly with our yoga for kids resource. We designed this relaxing stretches resource for with the school setting in mind. The majority of exercises do not require yoga mats. Additionally, we included many chair poses. Moreover, the digital version contains all original 32 classroom-friendly poses, plus 14 new bonus floor poses, which students can do more easily at home during distance learning.
Detailed, clear, and adorable visual supports, which include accompanying animals, help reinforce the learning of each mindful yoga pose. Each exercise is presented in a simple yet informative manner. Younger students love the illustrations! Perfect for your Calm Corner, Take a Break Station, trauma informed classroom and social emotional learning curriculum.
You can incorporate these mindful movements into your classroom in as little as a couple minutes per day. In addition, yoga for kids is a quiet activity. Calming movements can work wonders with transitions and shift chaotic energy into peaceful energy. When students slow down and pay attention to their movement, physical sensations in their body, and breathing, it helps them to move out of a reactive state into a receptive state. This also means they are more ready to focus, learn and make better decisions in whatever context they find themselves in.
Yoga is wonderful – and fun – coping skill; practicing yoga can improve self-control, self-awareness, mental focus, and even memory.

- To help with transitions in school, online, or at home.
