Blooming Minds Yoga Curriculum
In each of our childrens yoga classes we incorporate the following:
Yoga Poses: Children will learn yoga poses to develop balance, strength and coordination.
Games: Children will engage in age appropriate games to have fun while developing their attention span and ability to concentrate.
Feedback Circles: Children will participate in feedback circles which offer the opportunity to recognize, label and validate their feelings in relation to their yoga practice. Being present with their feelings helps to build their trust in others, confidence in themselves and tolerance of the unique situations we each present.
Storytelling: Children will gain an understanding of various social issues such as bullying, relationships, gratitude, etc. through age appropriate stories.
Guided Visualization/Meditation: Children will gain a sense of peace, calmness, and relaxation of the mind for clarity and focus while participating in guided visualization and meditation.
Art: Children will express themselves through art as well as use it as a modality for team building and relaxation of mind.
Family Yoga: Parents are encouraged to embrace our program components to carry-over into every day family life. It is important to reinforce yoga values at home to support healthy families
