Yoga for Children

The best part of my teaching day is dance time.  Just before our nutrition break, along with 19 Kindergartens and all of the other paraprofessionals in the room, I stop everything that's going on in our active classroom and we all "bust a move". We dance hard and with reckless abandon, like no one is watching.  (although on Friday I noticed the principal peeking from the hall with a sideways smirk).   The kids love it, the adults love it and it's fun!  This fifteen minutes of freedom  has reaffirmed for me the belief that children need and crave physical activity.

Next week, I've decided to try something new in the classroom.....YOGA!  The mental, physical, and emotional benefits are numerous. Not to mention the self control skills and the ability to handle solitude that can result from yoga practic.  If it makes the classroom more peaceful and calm we can't lose.

Listed below are several resources I found while researching our new classroom initiative.  I'm going to try it at home with my four year old too.
