Imagine a time when gigantic creatures roamed the Earth, when reptiles flew through the sky and when volcanoes erupted regularly. Life was certainly different during the 160 million years that the dinosaurs were alive! Next Generation Yoga’s Lesson Plan, “Dino-mite Yoga!” takes kids and families on a prehistoric journey back in time to learn about these fascinating creatures and the landscape during this period.
“Dino-mite Yoga!” is inspired by Jodi Komitor’s Gaiam DVD with the same name and has additional features, such as a theme-specific prop and playlist, detailed instructions for all Yoga poses, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques plus loads of dino-mite educational facts. As always, there are suggestions for how to share this lesson in a Family Yoga class.
