Class begins with everyone sitting together (after we quick get our wiggles out) and we do a breathing exercise as we pass around a hoberman sphere. We all inhale as the ball expands and exhale as the ball collapses, just as our bellies do. Everyone gets a turn and during their turn they can introduce themselves and talk about how they are feeling. Then the first portion of instructed movement begins. Poses are held for shorter periods of time and are given fun names. After about 10-20 minutes (or as long as the children can focus) we play a breakout game. I bring bubbles, activity dice, and balloons. We also play 'yogi says', which is much like 'simon says'. I strive for about 30-45 minutes of instructed yoga, which are broken up with games, so class can last up to an hour. At the end of class we do another feelings check-in and mantras. Then I turn on the galaxy lights for savasana.
