The Yoga 4 Classrooms Activity Card Deck makes sharing yoga, mindfulness and SEL-based strategies with your students simple! It’s also our signature classroom tool – the essential supplemental resource for our courses and program.
- Larger 6×8 boxed set features a detailed insert with information and instructions, and 67 yoga and mindfulness-based activity cards which include illustrated instructions, discussion points, sub-activities, and educational tie-ins, for a total of more than 200 impactful “mindful moments.”
- The activities for their suitability for the typical classroom space. That means all activities can be done standing beside or sitting at desks, while bodies and hands remain off the floor, away from dirt and germs.
- The cards include a mix of yoga-based stretching and strengthening poses, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindful focusing activities, creative movement and community-building games. Wellness and character-building discussion points such as the power of positive thinking, embracing diversity, nutrition, growth mindset, and being a peacemaker, address the whole child – physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.
Yoga 4 Classrooms helps children develop the self-awareness to realize how they feel and what they need; teaches them strategies to slow down, reset, and manage their emotions; guides them through movements that optimize their strength, flexibility and balance; encourages healthy habits for mind and body; and promotes compassion for oneself and others.
Absolutely anyone can use and benefit from using and sharing the Yoga 4 Classrooms activities – teachers, students, parents, therapists. No prior yoga or mindfulness experience is required.
