“A Kid’s Yoga Class: from chaos to calm


Show Notes 

It’s true! A kids yoga class doesn’t look or sound like an adult yoga class (and it shouldn’t)!

Straight from a question on our Mindful Conversations with KAY Facebook page, Kelly and Kristi explain why kids yoga classes may seem loud and unfocused. But there’s a method to the madness and as Kelly says, “Sometimes we gotta get loud before we can get quiet”.

Listen in as the conversation covers:

*The importance of proper pacing in a kids class
*Finding stillness amidst the busy-ness and chaos around us
*Mimicking a stress-response to practice self-regulation
*Naming sensations and experiencing your body and mind during active moments and during quiet moments
*Building mind-body awareness through physical movements, sensory experience es, and playful experimentation
*Being inclusive and making your classes accessible to all children
*Flexibility with lesson plans depending the children’s moods and needs
