Green Teacher magazine features Yoga 4 Classrooms Activity Card Deck

Monday, July 09, 2012

Green Teacher magazine offers a review of the Yoga 4 Classrooms® Activity Card Deck in its Summer 2012 issue by Pam MacIsaac:

"Lisa Flynn brings a decade of experience as a yoga/ mindfulness teacher to Yoga 4 Classrooms: Tools for Learning. Lessons for Life. This deck of easy-to-read cards offers 67 activities, specially chosen for their suitability in the typical classroom space. The yoga postures, brain-boosting movements, breathing exercises, visualizations, mindfulness activities, creative movement, and community-building community-building activities require no prior experience with yoga and can be used by parents, teachers, counsellors and students themselves. Activities include the “Power Breath,” where students inhale in a “mountain pose” and then exhale, forcefully drawing the sun’s energy down into their solar plexus. In another, “Monkey Arms,” students reach behind their backs, hooking their fingers, sitting up tall and opening up their chests to improve posture and release tension. In the “Be Well” section, students are encouraged to explore the outdoors by playing outside, creating a classroom garden, or making environmental mandalas. With the opportunity to randomly choose a card from the deck, the format is a convenient one for teachers who could use it as a highly positive break in the day. The cards are stored in an attractive container, and are printed in a large font with simple language, making them accessible to a range of ages. – (PM) "

Green Teacher is a quarterly magazine which offers perspectives on the role of education in creating a sustainable future, practical articles and ready to use activities for various age levels, and reviews of dozens of new educational resources. 

We are thrilled that Yoga 4 Classrooms Activity Card Deck was featured in this relevant publication and want to invite teachers, councelors and educators to subscribe to its great content!
