As we teach yoga to children, classic asana poses may be set aside to incorporate games, dance, song, and storytelling. The important thing to remember is that as teachers we are here to bring them into their joy. Basic tenets of yoga still apply, but we can add creative techniques that match a child's interactive learning style, such as adding animal sounds to pranayama practices. And when it’s time for shavasana, using creative visualizations can bring kids into their own form of stillness and quiet.
