It was so much fun and creative!
Children's yoga is quite different from adult's yoga. It's playfull and a combination of exercises, music and creativity.
Each lesson has its own theme, like the Beach, Snow, Christmas, Circus, Indians and so on. Its a mix of a story combined with yoga exercises, relaxation and a creative end. The lessons start with a ritual I particularly like: its the 'Telling Stone'.
The person who holds the stone is the one to speak, others are quiet.
I finished the training in January successfully and decided to do something with it. That is how Y o g a m e t e e n S t a a r t j e (Yoga with a little tail) excisted.
The tail refers to the positive effect yoga has and lots of exercises have animal names...and most animals have tails... ;-) Yoga is all about offering children to simply being themselves. No competition, no right or wrong, all is good. It gives them confidence, joy and relaxation.
I'm working on a website and hope to be teaching yoga to children in Amsterdam soon!
