  • Introduction Section
    Guidelines for yoga teachers:

    A. You may spend the first 10 mins explaining the purpose and theme of the yoga class.

    B. Next you may demonstrate each pose in a simple way, without focusing too much on alignment.

    C. Holding the yoga poses for long is not the idea here, it has to be more of playful way to appreciate their bodies.

    D. Take breaks when you sense the kids need it. And if this is their first class go slow and steady with the movements.

    E. Throughout the yoga sequence teach them the idea of Focus and Balance.
  • Corpse Pose (IRT) (Savasana (IRT))
    A. Always begin the yoga class with the practice of any relaxing yoga poses that helps the kids to unwind and settle down.

    B. Here we have used Savasana or Corpse Pose.

    C. Importance of unwinding or relaxing before starting the yoga class helps the teacher quickly understand each students mood. As a restless kid may not enjoy the relaxing yoga pose, a tired kid may just about fall asleep, a balanced kid may follow the instructions carefully and so on. Also, it helps kids/students feel loved and cared for and helps them settle their breathing and thought process.

    D. Let them stay here for about 2-3 minutes. Requesting them to close their eyes, if they are comfortable.

    E. Ask kids to smile when in Savasana.
  • Warmup

    3. Warmup

    A. It is always good to warm up the body even if it the yoga class is for kids.

    B. Let them jump 10 times, bend forward touching their toes about 5 times, stretch their arms out and bring them in 5 times etc.

    C. Choosing the warm up yoga poses is the choice of the students to help them get involved.

    D. Give them the choice to warm up, while you as a yoga teacher is also doing the warm up yoga poses.

    E. Around 2-3 minutes of warm up is good. It should cover legs, arms, shoulders and neck.

    D. Releasing, begin to make them stand in Beginner Tree Pose or Beginner Vrksasana. Here they will stand holding the arms stretched out sideways at shoulder level, touching and interlocking their neighbour's fingers.

    C. Explain the meaning of the name of the yoga pose. Also ask them before giving out the name, what would the name of the pose be. This would help them be more involved while enhancing their creativity.
