Attention Getting Games

Attention Getters are life savers during a kids yoga class. A kids yoga class never goes 100% according to plan. It’s never happened and never will happen. It’s crucial to have lots of ways to get the attention of distracted kids. All you need  to do is learn a few of the attention getting exercises.

For example, below is the Frere Jacques attention getting exercise…

“Sing the original Frere Jacques song with the kids: “Frère Jacques, frère Jacques, Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous? Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines! Ding, daing, dong. Ding, daing, dong.” When they get good at the original song, change the words to: “Are you listening? Are you listening? Everyone! Everyone! If you are listening. If you are listening. Look at me. Look at me.” At the end of the chant they can snap their fingers (and or pat their heads).”

The Attention Getting Exercises Include:

  • Bell Sound
  • Clap If You Can Hear
  • Clap Pattern
  • Consequences
  • Countdown
  • Eyes On Me Chant
  • Eyes On Your Chant
  • Frère Jacques Chant
  • How Did You Do That
  • Sentence Starter
  • Smile

Kids Yoga Games

Don’t make the mistake of teaching adult yoga to kids. You’ll bore the socks off them and they’ll never come back. Your job is to provide education and entertainment (edutainment). These kids yoga games do just that.

For example, below is the Alphabet Game: 

Go through whole alphabet with creative interpretations of poses. Let kids move naturally from one pose to next. Alligator “A”, Boat “B”, Cat “C”, Dog “D” , Rag doll with elephant’s trunk “E” , Frog “F”, Gorilla “G” , Handstand “H”, Inversion “I” , Jumping Jacks “J”, Knee to chest “K” , Locust “L”, Mountain “M” , Namaste Mudra “N”, OM “O”, Plough “P” , Quiet Sitting “Q”, Reclining Bound Angle “R”, Seated Forward Bend  “S”, Tree “T”, Upward Facing Plank “U”, Vayu Mudra “V”, Warrior I “W”, X Factor (make up a pose) “X”, Yoga Mudra “Y”, Zzz Relaxation “Z”.

Seated & Floor Poses

It’s important to teach “Kids Yoga Asanas”, not adult ones. If you teach adult poses to kids, it’s 100% guaranteed to bore them. I’ve made sure all the kids poses are not only interesting, but mini adventures.

For example, below is the Butterfly Pose (Baddha Konasana) mini adventure…

“Sit up tall with legs outstretched to become a caterpillar. Imagine you’re a wiggly caterpillar that is attached to a leaf and your skin is started to shed to reveal a hard skin underneath. We’ve now going to sit quietly before we turn into a colourful butterfly (wait several seconds). Wow! Look you’re turning into a butterfly. Bend your knees. Bring the bottoms of your feet together and hold onto them. We’re going to flap our wings and fly from our leaves. Gently bounce your knees up and down. Well done everybody. You’re flying.”

The Seated & Floor Asanas Include:

  • Bananasana
  • Basket
  • Bike Riding
  • Boat
  • Bow & Arrow
  • Butterfly
  • Camel
  • Camel Baby
  • Cat
  • Cheetah
  • Cobra
  • Cougar
  • Cow
  • Cow Stretching
  • Crab
  • Crocodile
  • Dog Tub Rub
  • Downhill Ski Slope
  • Fish
  • Flower
  • Force Field
  • Frog
  • Happy Baby
  • Happy New Year

Sun salutations

This category has all the traditional “sun salutation” poses. Rach of the poses has a cute, eye-catching sun.

For example, below is Upward Facing Dog Pose 

Upward Facing Dog Pose

The Sun Salutation Asanas Include:

  • Cobra
  • Down Dog
  • Forward Bend
  • Knees Chest Chin
  • Lunge
  • Mountain
  • Plank
  • Up dog
  • Upward Salute

Breathing Exercises

A child’s fragile and still-developing brain is less suited to handling stress and negative emotions, such as fear, anger or sorrow which is why approximately 170,000 UK children are seen by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) each year. That’s where kids breathing exercises can come to the rescue.

For example, below is the shooting star breathing exercise: 

“Everyone knows that if you see a shooting star, you make a wish. Ready? Sit with legs crossed. Bring palms together across your heart with fingers pointing up. Gently press hands against each other and straighten back. Inhale and bring hands over head. Exhale and lower hands to sides, twinkling your fingers. Whisper the word “wish” as you lower your arms. As we’ve just seen a shooting star let’s all wish for… (e.g. world peace).” 

The Breathing Exercises Include:

  • Balloon Breath
  • Feather Breath
  • Fireworks Breath
  • Fireworks Group Breath
  • Happy Sad Breath
  • Lava Breath
  • Shooting Stars Breath

Magic Hand Exercises

These magic hand exercises (Kid Mudras) build self-empowerment by learning how to access and send energy where it needs to go for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.

For example, below is the “Turtle In It’s Shell” magic hands exercise…

“Turtles have a hard shell that protects them like a shield. It’s so protective that they don’t have any predators interested in eating them. Are you ready to put your Turtle head inside your shell? Place your thumbs across your palms and wrap the fingers over the thumbs. Rest your hands palms face down on your knees or thighs. Did you know that the turtle is one of the oldest living animals. The oldest fossils of turtles are over 200 million years old. And they can live up to 100 years.”

The Magic Hands Exercises Include:

  • Aakash Mudra
  • Anjali Mudra
  • Apan Vayu Mudra
  • Apana Mudra
  • Asthma Mudra
  • Atmanjali Prayer Mudra
  • Bhairav Mudra
  • Bhramara Mudra

  • Uttarabodhi Mudra
  • Vajrapradama Mudra
  • Varun Mudra
  • Vayu Mudra

Standing Poses

It’s important to teach “Kids Yoga Asanas”, not adult ones. If you teach adult poses to kids, it’s 100% guaranteed to bore them. I’ve made sure all the kids poses are not only interesting, but mini adventures.

For example, below is the Alice In Wanderland (Tadasana) mini adventure: 

“Imagine you’ve got a magic potion given to your by Alice In Wonderland. Drink. Wow!  You’re becoming taller and taller (stretch hands over head).”

The Standing Asanas Include:

  • African Dog
  • Alice In Wonderland
  • Archer
  • Bat
  • Bird
  • Chimp
  • Dancer
  • Dolphin
  • Down Dog
  • Duck
  • Eagle

  • Lemur

Xtras

The “Xtras” are the extra poses that I’ve added that I think are useful, but don’t fit in any other category. For example, you might want an image to represent “breathe in” and “breathe out”. Well, you’ve guessed it, I added them to the “Xtras” category.

The Xtras Include:

  • Breathe In
  • Breathe Out
  • End Repeat
  • Game Reserve
  • Inhale/Exhale
  • Left Foot Forward
  • Namaste
  • Namaste (Activate Flying Mat)
  • Repeat
  • Repeat 2 Times
  • Repeat 3 Times
  • Repeat 4 Times
  • Repeat 5 Times
  • Right Foot Forward
  • Story
  • Sun Salutations
  • Sun Salutations A
  • Sun Salutations B
  • Sun Salutations C
  • Warm Up

Kids Meditation Exercises

Meditation helps children in many ways including: positive self concept, reduce stress, deal with stress better,  strengthen immune system, improve relationships,  replace anger with self acceptance,  improves focus, memory and opens the door to inner peace.

For example, below is the “Blue Forcefield” meditation exercise : 

“Sit with legs crossed. Close eyes. In your mind’s eye imagine you are covered in blue light (blue is associated with protection). It’s your force field that keeps out all negative energy. Feel your shoulders lowering and your breath slowing down as you feel secure in the knowledge that your force field is protecting you.”

The Kids Meditation Exercises Include:

  • Blue Forcefield
  • Chest Drum
  • Compassion Circle
  • Crying Baby
  • Destiny
  • Empty Cup
  • Gift Awareness
  • Karmic Laws
  • Mind Massage
  • Sight Awareness
  • Silent Bell
  • Silent Mind Retreat
  • Sound Meditation
  • Still Breath
  • Success Meditation
  • Taste Meditation
  • Third Eye Mediation

Relaxation Exercises

A child’s fragile and still-developing brain is less suited to handling stress and negative emotions, such as fear, anger or sorrow which is why approximately 170,000 UK children are seen by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) each year. That’s where kids relaxation can come to the rescue.

For example, below is the “Peace Bubbles” relaxation exercise : 

“Lie on your back. We’re going to send peace to everyone on our planet. Ready? Inhale deeply and on the exhale, gently blow imaginary peace bubbles into the room. As you blow out the peace bubbles, imagine they are filled with peace. Everyone in the room is peaceful thanks to your peace bubbles. Keep breathing in and exhaling peace bubbles. You’re doing great. The peace bubbles have now floated to the village or town where you live. Everyone in your village or town is peaceful thanks for your peace bubbles. Keep breathing in and exhaling peace bubbles. The peace bubbles have now floated across the whole country. Everyone in our county is peaceful thanks for your peace bubbles. Keep breathing in and exhaling peace bubbles. The peace bubbles have now floated across the whole world. Everyone in the world is peaceful thanks for your peace bubbles.” 

The Kids Relaxation Exercises Include:

  • Belly Balloon
  • Body Scan
  • Compassion Field
  • Compassion Ugly
  • Elastic Band
  • Peace Bubbles
  • Sleepy Sea Star
  • Whisper Name

For example, below is the C-3PO Pose (Standing Twist)…

“C-3PO has had his head blasted off. Let’s put it back on him. Oh no. We’ve put his head on the wrong way around (Twist upper body and neck to the right so you’re looking behind and walk forwards. Twist upper body and neck to the left so you’re looking behind and walk forwards). Let’s put his head on the correct way. (return to facing straight ahead).”

The Star Wars Asanas Include:

Megan Quackenbush Feels Like She Has Won The Lottery With The Kids Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit Because Its Given Her The Gift Of Time

“I have been a school teacher and certified children’s yoga teacher for about 13 years. Because I believe in the importance of health for children, I’ve always integrated yoga into my daily curriculum, as well as led before and after school programs for elementary school students. On top of academic lesson planning, which has gotten increasingly more demanding in recent years, yoga lesson planning requires time, effort, and creativity. These are resources that are being spread thin. Recently, I made the decision to leave the public education field, and teach yoga full-time. It’s ironic that once I cleared some room on my plate, I stumbled upon this amazing lesson planning program! The drag and drop format makes it easy for me to see the flow of poses, and move them around as needed. I also love the plethora of choices provided in organized categories (breathing, games, seated). This keeps my lessons varied and creative. Finally, I really like the printing options. When I download the PDF, I can see a picture of each pose, benefits, contraindications, and even a link for a video demonstration! The box provided to document the time for each pose is beneficial when I’m running through the lesson before teaching it to my students; I can plan out every minute of the class with confidence. I’m very excited about my new adventures as a full-time yoga teacher, and I feel like I’ve won the lottery with this program, which is awarding me the gift of time.”

Secret Lesson Planning Formula

Kids Yoga Lesson Planning Secret Formula

It’s really important for your creativity and sanity to come up with a Kids Yoga Lesson Planning Formula that suits your personality, and to stick with it. Changing your mind about your formula each week is a massive energy leak and usually leads to uninspiring, mediocre, run-of-the-mill lesson plans.

That’s why I’m giving you my proven Kids Yoga Lesson Planning Formula.

Yoga Dice

I created this yoga dice from the ABC Yoga Kids Adventure Cards. The dice has 6 sides (camel, down dog, lion, upward facing dog, frog and cobra). You can print as many as you like. All you need is a bit of glue and some elbow grease. Kids love the Yoga Dice Game because it’s a lot of fun and they get to become the teacher.

Steps to create the yoga dice

1. Download the yoga dice
2. Print the template on thicker than average paper
3. Cut the template out
4. Bend all the tabs and lines to make construction easier
5. Glue it together to make the dice

Game instructions

1. Let the child throw the dice
2. The child becomes the teacher and performs the pose
3.  The class copies
4.  Give the dice to another child and repeat steps 1 to 3

Sequence Game

1. Download and create 4 dice
2. Let four children throw the dice
3. Teach the sequence

Unlimited Pose Requests

Even though there are now 1000+ poses in the Planner, there is an infinite amount of modifications. So, if you want a new pose added to the Lesson Planner just click the “Request A Pose” button on the Lesson Planner dashboard. And I’ll add it for you within 48 hours!
