This course is designed for elementary and secondary school teachers looking to incorporate yoga techniques into their classroom curriculum. Yoga experience is not required.
Help your students to:
* Build focus and concentration * Reduce test taking anxiety and enhance performance * Release fidgety, disruptive energy * Feel successful by addressing multiple learning styles * Soothe themselves in moments of conflict * Alleviate physical tension and stress
It’s hard to believe that young children can get stressed out, but they definitely do. The everyday hectic routines that children lead - homework, taking tests, peer pressure, family issues, starting a new school, heavy school bags, endless after-school activities, lack of sleep – can all become very stressful.
Yoga is a wonderful outlet for children to counter pressures, to release stress and pay attention to how they feel. Yoga allows children to redirect their energy in a positive way by using fun, child-friendly techniques that help them to calm their minds and bodies, especially at times when they may be experiencing anxiety or nervousness. When kids release their stresses, they have less to distract them and more energy to focus and learn! See NBC Today Show segment.
But how can you move and stretch in limited space and with a limited budget? We’ll show you great yoga poses, games, breathing and visualization techniques to weave into a busy school day. Students can practice these poses at their desks, sitting and standing, as well when your class has some open space to really bend and stretch.
Overall Benefits of Yoga for Children:
Physical Strength and Flexibility Concentration, Focus and Attention Improve Motor Skills Inner Strength and Body Awareness Confidence and Self-esteem Build Social Skills Sensory Awareness Relaxation and Self-control A Feeling of Well-Being & Respect for Others Love for One’s Self, Inside and Out
