Themed Lesson Plans

Are you looking for ideas for a creative Yoga class for children?  Do you want to incorporate engaging Yoga "play" into your home, classroom or therapeutic setting?  Then our themed lesson plans are just what you need.

CALL TO ACTION

Each plan is thoughtfully structured following the same class plan outline we teach the students in our teacher training program.

You'll get practices for breath awareness, warming up, asanas, transitioning to quiet, meditation and relaxation - along with the games, creative movement and activities that make Yoga engaging and fun for children of all ages. All this is cleverly sequenced to follow a specific theme and intention. You'll also get a list of suggested supplies for the class and additional resources where appropriate.

Use the plans as is or as thought starters and supplements to your own ideas.  Each one is chock full of fun practices that can easily be made into more than one class, or many different practices at home or school.

You'll get the themed/child friendly name of each pose and practice along with the Sanskrit name where applicable.  Detailed descriptions of how to achieve proper alignment in each pose are not included.  You'll need a basic understanding of Yoga to use these plans.
