“Yoga in Schools Part 2: Yoga and Physical Education Curriculum”

Listen here…

Show Notes


Physical Education classes (also known as PE or Gym) are the highlight of many children’s days – the opportunity to physically move and take a mental break is understandably needed.

Other kids are not as keen on PE and may feel anxious and timid in PE class.

Kelly and Kristi have a suggestion: Make yoga part of the PE curriculum!

In this episode of Mindful Conversations with KAY, we discuss:

  • Inclusivity in the PE space
  • How yoga practices and activities fit easily into a PE curriculum
  • Using yoga skills to improve and enhance sports skills and physical literacy
  • Celebrity athletes and yoga
  • PE teachers unique ability, space, and schedule to actively explore yoga
  • Setting up yoga activity stations and yoga-fying traditional games in your PE classes
  • Suggestions on how to start making yoga part of your PE classes
