“Yoga in Schools Part 2:

Yoga and Physical Education Curriculum

 

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!

*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
