It’s a wonderful resource of 40 (clearly laid-out) lesson plans for children ages 4-12 years. It compliments the Montessori classroom beautifully (developed and written by an experienced Montessori and yoga teacher), but can be implemented in any style of classroom with great success.

Why bring yoga into your classroom? Studies show that yoga improves students’ behavior, physical health, academic performance, and attitudes toward themselves.

Creative Yoga for Children is a perfect resource for schools seeking to incorporate yoga and mindfulness programs into their curriculum, or for parents to encourage body-mind awareness at home. Creative Yoga for Children promotes physical, emotional, and social development through stress reduction, movement, and free exploration.

  1. Not much except playing quite game with children. I do take my own children to yoga class and they love it. I am pretty sure children in classroom will love it too.

  2. We tried doing yoga daily in our homeschool, but the kids soon lost interest. Would love new resources to get the fire going again!

  3. I do a little yoga with my students, but I am very interested in learning how to blend it with educational concepts that I’m currently teaching. This book sounds really great!

  4. I do some yoga with the children, but admittedly, it should be more. I just find it difficult to keep some of them focused. Perhaps this is the solution I need. I hope I win!!

  5. This would be perfect for my wife and her new classroom. She’s always telling me that she needs to find a way to bring more peace into her room! She doesn’t do yoga yet – but I’m sure she’d give it a try 🙂

  6. What a great giveaway! I would love to learn how to bring Yoga into our classroom. We don’t do yoga right now – but I’d sure love to incorporate it into our day. Thanks so much!

  7. I use yoga in the classroom when we cannot get outside. Since I am not a full fledged instructor, the children and I are learning how to do this together. It is nice when the room is quiet and the children have calmed down when practicing this fun exercise. Thanks for this opportunity.

  8. He in our Shanghai school, I would love use yoga in my classroom – This book sounds exactly like what I need to get my kid yoga masters

  9. I would love to do it with my child and students.
    I, myself, practice yoga and try to inspire also the kids with little practice every now and then to help them concentrate on a particular activity. I’m sure this book would help me a great deal.

  10. I think It would be a great idea add some yoga in kid’s life, why? well…
    I these days sometimes It’s dificult to find a moment to have peace and calm. I almost sure that Dr. Montessori would love introduce some yoga exercise in her classroom!
    She knew that we need to need not only the body, but the spirit and the soul…
    I would love bring in “La Semilla” ( a time to focus in our body…
    Thank you for the iniciative!

  11. My 5-yr-old has been showing lots of interest in yoga, so this would be perfect. I’m a neophyte to yoga myself, so could use some guidance.

  12. I have been thinking for a while to get back into Yoga for myself and would love to start a children´s class. This is just what I need, I especially like that it covers up to 12 years of age!

  13. I have yoga cards on the shelf for the students to use individually and they are very popular. I would love to be able to do it with the children on a regular basis and this book sounds like a perfect way to introduce myself and the class to it.

  14. I would love to use this in my classroom! We have talked a lot about breathing and relaxing our bodies, and this would be a great extension from there!

  15. I take yoga myself and have often thought, “I wish I knew ways to do this with my students. This book would be perfect for me.

  16. In previous years, yoga was done in my classroom about once a week (teacher directed) and then yoga cards were left on the movement shelf for children to use as they needed/wanted. This year I’m at a new school and we are just starting to talk about bringing yoga in to help with our peaceful environment. This giveaway would be so helpful!

  17. I do a few simple yoga poses in my 3-6 class daily to help calm the busy bodies. They love the animal names and trying to stay balanced. I think I could learn what in more appropriate for young children from this book.

  18. We do music and movement every day after lunch with our special needs children. At the moment we follow a Youtube yoga class but it would be fantastic to have this book to compliment our routine

  19. I have been practising yoga for a couple of years now and love the benefits of it! I am a Montessori teacher and I would love to introduce yoga to the class!

  20. I have been teaching in Montessori classroom for 6 years and I cannot agree with you more on the benefits on Yoga. I would love to have a more structered yoga as a curriculum and tailored to meet the age appropriate needs and it would perfectly for into my classroom.

  21. Yoga is the most favorite peace activity in my classroom, it is presented as a group lesson once a week also available as individual work in the shelf.

  22. I have used yoga practices such as breathing informally but would love to I corporate it more in my class of 4th to 6th graders, and also share it with the other younger classes in the school as well.

  23. My kids started with Yoga Pretzels and then started making Yoga moves on their own for letters of the alphabets, vehicles, etc. We even made our own cards. Having this book would enhance our experience!

  24. I am currently taking my training to be a yoga instructor and I think this would be a great resource to have in addition to my training! I would love to use it with my children who I homeschool. Thanks for this giveaway!

  25. Ditto on the Brain Gym- we use it every morning in our 3-6 class. Yoga would be a great addition/variation for this morning routine.

  26. This is exactly what my Before School Program needs; it’d also be beneficial in after school and when the classmates need a break from work cycle or after transitions from outdoor to indoor.

  27. We do Brain Gym daily as a way to prepare ourselves for work time. This resource would add more movement choices to our menu. I know that my lower elementary students would LOVE these ideas!

    • Hi,
      I teach brain gym to my class. If you like to share I would like to know how do you practice brain gym in your classroom.

  28. I would love to start yoga in my classroom – but I’m not sure where to start. This book sounds exactly like what I need to get started!!
