I take an experiential approach to learning and incorporate many diverse experiences into classes. We have had fascinating discussions, moved our bodies in wonderful ways, experimented with asanas (postures), breathing techniques and guided relaxations that have helped the children to understand their own bodies more fully.
Art is an essential ingredient in these classes and helps stimulate creative and lateral thinking. This week we looked at legs and feet and made a mural drawing using our feet. Besides being a great way to use the little muscles and joints in the feet that dont get much opportunity to move when they are locked in shoes all day, it was so much fun. I highly recommend it as a school holiday activity to try with your own children. They will never know they are refining their fine motor skills.
This term for Kids Yoga we have been looking at ‘Our Bodies’ as a way of exploring yoga principles.
