Curriculum

Section 1: Welcome and introduction
01:05

You don't need to be a yoga teacher in order to do yoga with children. Let's keep an open mind and explore the fun with them. You are always welcome to give me any feedbacks. Namaste!

Section 2: Some guidelines
01:23

Basic principles:

1. Each yoga session is not more than 45 minutes.

2. Give children a break (e.g. relaxation lying down on the mat or some breathing exercises) after each yoga game or asana exercise.

3. They are the POSES.

01:53

3 basic rules:

1. Discipline

2. Concentration

3. Not being perfect

00:46

All you need are:

1. A long cloth

2. Some toy puppets

3. A singing bowl

4. A candle

5. Some plants or flowers if you want

6 questions

A short test to see whether you get the basic understanding of doing children yoga

Section 3: Flow of a class
01:47

Please be careful with the candle fire and keep distance from children. Please also be reminded that, If you do yoga involved children with photosensitive epilepsy, you should not use the candle, as the fire can trigger seizures.

The candle fire warms up our hearts during the whole yoga process!

01:10

We sang the song in German as one of the mother tongues of the children are German. I have included the English translation of the song at the video. You can follow the lyrics and sing with the same melody. It is a very good opening for a nice session.

03:31

We ask children how they are and how they feel at the beginning.

It is also a good time to 'rehearse' some poses with them with the help of those toy puppets.

01:37

We dance like monkeys and warm up children's bodies from toes to head.

00:23

Children are allowed to shout out loud with the awareness of breathing. They like it!

I find this exercise is amazing. I asked my children to do this exercise when they are angry or upset about something. It works! They can calm themselves down.

01:06

The classical sun salutation has been modified for children. It links many important yoga poses together and give children a bigger view of yoga asanas. A very good yoga exercise in every yoga session.

01:02

Massage techniques are not important in this case. Children would find the massage much more interesting when it is linked with daily life scenarios.

01:59

A normal children game is modified and linked with yoga poses. There are still a lot of other possibilities.

Relaxation: Butterflies and flowers
00:52
02:49

Partner exercise is a good way to communicate and laugh together with your children.

01:07

I attached some more story ideas at the section of additional resources, please take a look!

00:47

If it is possible, try to do the end relaxation for about 5 minutes.

04:12

It is a nearly five minutes fantasy travel for children more than 5 years old.

01:59

We gathered together after the yoga session and talked about which section the children like or dislike, while we were enjoying the tea and fruits. The whole class finished with three times OM.

6 questions

This test is about if you can get the idea of a children yoga flow.

Instructor Biography

Tracy Wong, Children and Adult Yoga Teacher

I am a qualified yoga teacher and trained under Wanda Hewitt (Founder and Yoga Education Director at YogaLimbs Hong Kong) at the 250 hours Yoga Alliance registered Yoga teacher training program in Hong Kong in 2008. I was born in Hong Kong and got degrees in journalism and psychology. Before immersing myself into yoga, I worked as news reporter and fundraising manager at a non-governmental organization. Then I further explore the diversity of yoga in Berlin and got certified to children yoga trainer by Carmen Ramirez Schmidt, a children yoga expert in Germany. With constant interaction with my two little daughters, I developed my own style of children yoga.
