Kids...Keep Calm and Get Your Yoga Pose On

My students need to learn correct alignment of their body and to practice the yoga poses with correct form with the aid of props, such as yoga blocks and straps.

My Students

I am the mindfulness and yoga teacher at my school and I teach mostly students with special needs. My students come from all over the world and many languages are spoken in my school. Many of the students come from single-parent family and some live in shelters. We are a school with a supportive administration and awesome staff, many who volunteer their time to provide special events and programs for our students and families. Including myself, I provide with my own funds materials and supplies to teach my students mindfulness and yoga techniques. However, I could use support to provide my students with the materials that would improve their skills and practice.

My Project

My students will better understand the correct form for each yoga pose with the use of yoga props (blocks and straps) and become more aligned, balanced and connected to their body. Many students are performing the poses incorrectly and I am limited on correction and adjustments I can make to 30+ students at one time without the support of yoga props. Therefore with the appropriate yoga supplies and props, I can utilize and teach my students to perform the poses correctly. Once students understand the correct form for each pose, then a connection can be made between mind, Breath and body.
