Almost a decade ago, I took my first weekend course to become a kids yoga teacher. I knew right away that this was the path for me, and I decided to jump right into to teaching kids yoga wherever I could.

Based on my few trainings I experience as a Yogi, I thought it would be fun and a perfect fit. I was fortunate enough to find a full-time job teaching kids yoga at a nearby public charter school within six months.

I was so excited to share with these kids all the yoga and games I had learned through my training and initial experience. I was convinced it would help them learn and focus and that they would love it right away.

All of my training gave me great ideas and advice on how to teach yoga to kids, and what games to play, but I had a few big problems…

  • Nothing I had learned had prepared me to come up with lesson plans, content, and class outlines 
  • I didn’t know how to manage classroom behaviors (which can range from mild unwillingness to dramatic and unsafe aggression) 
  • I had no idea how to keep kids engaged with the yoga sequences that I came up with
  • I had no resources for students of color… there were almost NO images of kids doing yoga who weren’t white. How could I convince them yoga was for them, too, when the kids didn’t look like them?

As a yoga and an educator who'd worked with kids for over a decade, I was at a loss to figure out WHY these kiddos weren't engaging and enjoying the yoga that I was teaching!

It is hard to start teaching kids yoga, no matter your background.

You might have the poses and some lesson ideas, but unless you have the sequences and a solid class outline it can be tough to replicate.

Finally, after almost three years of struggling, I stumbled upon a sequence that worked. From there I built up a class outline, I learned more about mindfulness and growth mindset, and I put it all together.

A Yoga Flow, class outlines that work, and some tried and true lesson plans that are easily replicate-able with different themes is what worked for me and will work for you.

"I am so glad I found Kumarah Yoga online. I love the yoga flow cards – the drawings are great. They are cute and fun and perfect for kids of all ages. I especially like the diversity represented. I also appreciate the literature-based yoga lessons. I am a former elementary school teacher, and I love using children’s picture books in my classes. I’ve found Kumarah Yoga to be one of the most valuable resources I have for teaching dynamic kids yoga classes!"
