Structuring a pre-teen yoga class can be tricky; games and songs may seem juvenile, yet a traditional adult flow is often too much. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to make the KAY outline more suitable for yogis between 10-12 years old. We’ll take a look at meditation, pranayama and movement for this specific age group. We’ll discuss the best options for music, games and activities. Pre-teens are at that awkward age between being a young kid and a teenager. Ensure your KAY class delivers that perfect mix of silliness and seriousness!
Children need yoga and mindfulness now more than ever! Help bring this practice into their homes and lives and continue to change the world, one peaceful child at a time!

What is Raja Yoga and where did it come from? You have heard that yoga is much more than the postures, but maybe you’re looking for more information on what exactly that is, or for ways to incorporate yoga philosophy into your KAY classes.

When sharing yoga with children, not only are arts and crafts projects a great way to teach new poses, they also promote mindfulness, self-expression and innovation. Kids of all ages are always excited to draw, paint, craft, and create. Spice up your yoga class with simple, yet creative craft projects!
Teaching children how to meditate is a whole different ballgame than teaching it to adults! Kids have less patience, shorter attention spans and less capacity to sit still. On the other hand, they have a greater imagination, a sense of playfulness and they learn by example. In this workshop, we’ll take a look at how to teach meditation effectively to kids of all ages.
