Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I need to practice yoga to be able to do this?

No - all of the activities come with great photos to illustrate the yoga poses and help you learn the poses along with your students.


2. How much time will this take to implement?

Each activity will take no more than 15 minutes to do with your class and you may need up to 15 minutes to review and prep beforehand.

Each activity is laid out in easy steps with all the photos and links attached that you need.


3. What kind of activities are included?

There are six types of activies included in the program;
 

  1. Transition Routines: Each week starts out with an energetic series of poses to help your students get the sillies out and be able to focus for the day. We start out simple and then build on these routines as you get more familiar with the poses.
  2. Calming Tools: Each week we introduce a mindfulness activity to help focus the energy of the class.  To end each week is a guided visualization perfect to spark the creative juices of your students and to end the week on a calm and peaceful note.
  3. Creative Visualizations:  In addition to the calming tools to end each week is a guided visualization perfect to spark the creative juices of your students and to end the week on a calm and peaceful note.
  4. Cooperation and Connection: Yoga means unite and getting kids to look each other in the eye and work together is a big part of what yoga is all about. Using yoga games, story telling circles, partner and group poses we get kids to connect and collaborate.
  5. Music and Dancing: Its simply amazing what music can do to affect mood and light up the brain. Within the program we share several ideas to use music for dancing out the sillies, singing fun songs with yoga poses and create a calm and peaceful atmosphere.

4. How will this help me to feel better?

Movement and mindfulness are two of the biggest factors for helping us feel great.  

Often we may not have time to add these into our daily morning or evening routines so sneaking in a few minutes throughout the day will help to keep you active and give your mind that break it needs so you can think clearly and have a more positive approach to your day.


5. What if I don't use facebook?

Facebook is used to connect as a group.  I know its kind of a double edged sword and some love it while others will have nothing to do with it. It is very simple and effective though for us to connect and share ideas, photos and links to other great resources.

Without facebook you will still recieve the emails and are able to email me directly for ideas and support.


6. What happens after the Challenge?

Your membership in the group lasts forever so each time a new group goes through you will get inspired with new ideas and resources to use yoga and mindfulness in your class. 

The connections you make during the challenge will last forever too so you can continue to share ideas and experiences with all the great things you do in the classroom.
