Science has shown and educators have experienced first-hand, that when
children are anxious, frustrated or stressed, it is nearly impossible
for them to learn. It is only from a relaxed, calm and present state of
mind and body that our children can be psychologically and
In 2007, LisaFlynn, E-RYT, RCYT and founder of ChildLight Yoga, was inspired and challenged by the classroom teachers she encountered to create a yoga and mindfulness-based program focused on the whole child that would also be appropriate for the classroom setting. After three and a half years of research, development and test piloting, Yoga 4 Classrooms was born.
Yoga 4 Classrooms offers professional development workshops for educators, in-service workshops for school staffs, a classroom residency program, and opportunities for educators, school counselors and school teams to train become IMPLEMENT Leaders in their schools and for yoga teacher educators to train to be Y4C Trainers. Due to popular demand, we are now thrilled to offer the Yoga 4 Classrooms Activity Card Deck, a supporting or stand-along resource for classroom teachers.
The Yoga 4 Classrooms Card Deck is a fun and effective tool for teachers to use with their students for a peaceful and productive classroom.
- Larger 6x8 boxed set features 67 yoga and mindfulness-based activity cards which include illustrated instructions, discussion points, sub-activities, and educational tie-ins, for a total of more than 200 beneficial classroom practices.
- The activities were specially chosen for their suitability for the
typical classroom space. That means all activities can be done standing
beside or sitting at desks, while bodies and hands remain off the floor,
away from dirt and germs.
- The cards include a mix of yoga postures, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindfulness activities, creative movement and community-building games. Wellness and character-building discussion points such as the power of positive thinking, nutrition, and being a peacemaker, address the whole child – physical, social and emotional.
Yoga 4 Classrooms helps children develop the self-awareness to realize
how they feel and what they need; teaches them strategies to slow down,
unwind and manage their emotions; guides them through movements that optimize their strength, flexibility and
balance; demonstrates healthy habits; and reminds them to love and
forgive themselves. Y4C provides students with tools for learning and
lessons for life.
Absolutely anyone can use and benefit from the Y4C Activity Card Deck - teachers, students, parents, therapists. No prior yoga experience required.
