Description

Learn to teach children and families all about the spine with Next Generation Yoga’s Lesson Plan, “Spine Time!” In this Lesson Plan, you and the children you teach will gain an understanding of how the human spine moves, twists, turns, arches and rounds by mimicking animals and things in nature.

“Spine Time” is a combination Yoga class and mini-anatomy lesson. Children have never had so much fun learning about and experiencing how the spine moves! This lesson plan is full of age-appropriate Yoga poses, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques and sprinkled with music recommendations, prop suggestions and creative movement ideas to make the theme come to life! Written by NGY Founder, Jodi B Komitor & NGY Teacher Nicole Koleshis, this Next Generation Yoga Lesson Plan will show you how to infuse the “Spine Time” theme into a Yoga class, specifically designed for 2-7 and 8-13 year olds.

Whether you are a parent, school-based educator, or an experienced or new yoga teacher, NGY Lesson Plans are for you and the children in your life. They are thoughtfully designed so that everyone can learn something new.
