One of the flyers I pass out to my Beginners Yoga class.  All of these poses have modifications, especially if there are lack of flexibility challenges, and people wanting to use the chair to assist down to the floor.  Adaptive Beginning Yoga to help you gain your wellness goals!  Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177

Depicted here are the kids version of the Salute to the Sun.  Typically kids and young adults have the ability to do yoga poses with little or no modification.  But, usually these groups do not have the awareness of their bodies, and as a teacher, you should still coach them to be aware of alignment, posture, and placement for a good overall safe yoga practice.  Go YogaKiddos!

Sequence of poses for the salute to the sun with additionally demonstrating Warrior I, Reverse Warrior and Side Angle Pose.  All done at the Beginner Level to help you toward your wellness goals.  Even on the chair there are Advance, Intermediate and Beginning versions of poses.

Call Gail Pickens-Barger, Experienced Beginning Adaptive Yoga Teacher.  If you don’t like my classes, or the fit isn’t just right, I will find you a class or teacher to help you on your path to your wellness goals.  409-727-3177.  Thank you!

Z is for Moose – YogaKiddos class

Found a delightful little book to use in Kids Yoga at my child’s Scholastic Book fair last month.

“Z is for Moose!”

This laugh-out-loud romp of an abecedary features an impatient moose who just can’t wait for his turn. There is something intrinsically funny about moose (the art has a Bullwinkle feel), and this overenthusiastic one prematurely pops up onstage at D, wearing a proud grin, with hapless Duck having been pushed out of the way. Zebra (sporting a referee’s black-striped shirt) leaps out from the corner, shouting, “Moose? No. Moose does not start with D. You are on the wrong page.” Moose then wanders onto Elephant’s page, Fox and Glove are forced to share a stage, and then Moose’s irrepressibly excited mug plops down from the ceiling, obscuring Hat: “Is it my turn yet?” Basically, he is like an antsy kid anticipating his big star turn at M, only to be heartbroken when Mouse is given that letter’s starring role. Zebra, though frustrated, is not deaf to Moose’s offstage sobbing (look to the title for his resolution to the problem). Ideal for kids who are past struggling to learn the alphabet and who will fully get the humor in Moose’s goofy antics. Grades K-2. –Diane Foote

Review

“Everybody will be elated with this goofy new way of going from A to Z.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review) )

“This zany alphabet book will make children smile.” (School Library Journal (starred review) )

“This laugh-out-loud romp of an abecedary features an impatient moose who just can’t wait for his turn.” (Booklist (starred review) )

“If you think you’ve seen every possible idea for an alphabet book played out, think again.” (Horn Book (starred review) )

“Just label it F for funny.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) )

“Readers accustomed to the usual list of letters will be giggling with suspense by the time ‘L is for Lollipop’ rolls around.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Here is my review of the book.

Z is for Moose. Great book to use with Kids Yoga! This ABC book to use in reading the story out loud, then acting out the A, B, C animals in the book with yoga poses. It’s great when moose tries to take over the other letters, and has great humor it the story line. I supplemented the book/storytelling with ABC Yoga for Kids Card deck, so that we could further act out animal poses for the letters. For example, the letter U, is Umbrella in the book, but I had the kiddos pick out cards from my yoga deck, and instead of acting out Umbrella, we acted out Unicorn instead. Worked very well for ages 4 – 12.

 Here are the cards that I used to supplement the storytelling aspect of the book for the class!

I bought the book, the color book and the cards to use in the YogaKiddos classes.

Ahh!  Enjoy!
