59.95

In yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas are a moral code of conduct—a guideline on how to live. Together the Yamas and Niyamas help us make careful decisions about how to think, speak, and behave. This foundational thinking prepares children to form healthy relationships with themselves and others.

Yamas include five (5) guidelines that support how we become a good friend to others, the world, and ourselves. Niyamas describe the principles of being a good person. Through them, we build character to us along our path to becoming who we know we truly can be. We learn mindfulness and self-discipline so we can be good citizens in the world.

These lessons plans can be used as a complete yoga class following the FGKY teaching methodology, or can be used in the home, easily adapted for the school classroom or clinical settings.

Using this 10-lesson unit, adults  (parent, teacher, or clinician) can facilitate conversations, games, activities, and yoga experiences that give children concrete information about each of the Yamas and Niyamas. Each lesson has a beautifully illustrated yoga sequence, breathing/meditation exercises, arts and crafts projects, and instruction on leading a class!

Each of the 10 lessons introduces you to one of the Yamas or Niyamas and how to teach it to children ages 7-11, including:

  • group work or activity with facilitated questions and discussions

  • breathing exercises, meditations and guided relaxations you can read outloud

  • beautifully illustrated yoga pose sequences

  • art projects with instructions for children to express themselves

Also included is:

  • 35 vividly illustrated yoga poses—including six (6) never-before-released—that can be used in a number of ways, such as self-teaching and memory games

  • Sun Salutation poster complete with poem and poses
