We finished up the semester with a short unit on yoga. Not only do yoga poses require control, balance, flexibility and strength, but it can be a lot of fun. We do lots of animal poses, especially with the preschoolers and Younger Kids, that go along with stories and games that keep them engaged. For the Middle and Older Kids, we advance to partner poses as well as power yoga that can be quite difficult (a real challenge for those older boys and girls).
There’s also the added benefit of ending each session with relaxing poses where we get to listen to the music, rest and come out refreshed for the rest of the school day.
