In this download, there are 11 ready-to-go kids yoga class plans for tweens (kids aged 8 to 12).
It’s a 38 page PDF crammed with tried and tested class detail.
Please note: If you don’t know how to instruct kids yoga poses, you will need further resources. Detail on all poses are included in the Big Yoga Posture Book and also on our YouTube channel as a series of free videos. We also recommend our fabulous online teacher training!
We travel the world, using yoga postures to learn about nature, geography and culture across the continents.
Here are the classes included in the download:
Children work in pairs to explore yoga postures, learning to balance and support each other.
The children try group and individual yoga postures to represent the unity and events of the Olympic games.
Yoga for Sports and Athletics
A focus on the physical benefits of yoga for sports, especially to prevent injury. A yoga class with a more adult feel.
The Alphabet Body
We show how yoga helps particular parts of the body, using a fun alphabet-based game.
Building Balance with Yoga
The children explore their balance and practice staying centered when they face challenges on and off their yoga mat. This is about being OK with falling too!
What am I feeling? (part 1)
We consider how yoga makes us feel, trying yoga postures and breathing techniques to notice their effects on our bodies and minds.
What am I feeling? (part 2)
We continue to explore the way certain yoga postures make us feel. Do this class after Part 1.
The Yoga Challenge
A class about working together and building a yoga sequence based on the children’s knowledge and understanding about yoga poses learnt so far.
The children focus on their shoulders, releasing tension, building strength and opening the chest for a better posture.
Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space
The children identify and explore yoga postures that link to the five basic elements – Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space.
