Yoga for Kids - Explore Nature

Description     More info

In this class we tell a story about the creation of nature so that the children can practice different yoga poses inspired by animals, plants and elements such as the sun through adapted sun greetings, or the night. It ends with a little relaxation that leaves the body and mind calm.

Hello How are we We are here To introduce you to our yoga for kids section To learn a little bit some postures some asanas that we can do at home with parents We can do at school with friends and we will learn a little bit by little bit about nature Through yoga I wanted to introduce you to Lua

who is going to be here with me being my partner and accompanying me And I am Cayetana And before we start I wanted to give you a brief introduction of what yoga is so that the kids you guys who are there at home You can understand it ok Yoga comes from Sanskrit which is a language spoken in India

Where does yoga come from what does it mean union is worth So here what we are going to try to do is to unite Several parts ok but three are the main ones which is the body

With the yoga postures that we are going to be doing with the movements We are going to open our mind that is what we think about where we have the memory

And then the heart, where are the feelings to feel well Joyful contentment In peace that's a little bit what we try to do at the end of our classes ok Then already Without further ado I wanted to chat with you sharing the sun salutation that is a choreography of different steps or yoga asanas To warm up the body a little bit And then we start to play Let's look at each other A little bit in front of each other and let's do it a little bit more fun maybe than when we do it alone with the older ones

What is singing then as we go through the motions we're going to sing a song in the sun

And since today we are lucky enough to have this wonderful day that the sun is there and it is shining directly on us, we are going to take advantage of it

to grab this energy for us ok then let's start Sun sun sun sun greeting the sun Sun sun sun sun greeting the sun Sun sun sun sun greeting the sun I greet you we greet everything we greet our sun and now we do the steps I stretch my arms under my head I step backwards I do the snake and the snake makes this noise I step backwards And the downward facing dog that we will learn And the downward facing dog breathes then we say breathe to stretch the back a little bit more And again And breathe and now Step forward Under the head I stretch my arms and I look at the sun let's repeat it one more time so that since we have seen it once and will One more time let's see if we remember ok and then it's Sun sun sun sun greeting the sun Sun sun sun sun sun greeting sun sun sun sun sun sun greeting greeting sun I greet you greet all we greet our sun and again I stretch out my arms I lower my head Step backwards I do the snake now we know it, don't you remember? Step backwards Downward facing dog And breathe a little bit there, we stretch the back Breathe And now step forward I lower my head I stretch my arms We have finished Well very good I hope you have learned a little bit at home

As we were greeting the sun we are going to learn how to make the sun With our body we are going to do the sun posture So for that we spread our legs as far apart as we can which are like the rays of the sun towards the ground

And the same with the arms upwards What are the rays of the sun towards the sky Okay so if we can stretch a little bit more we take a very deep breath and stretch a little bit more stretch those rays of the sun

And we let out a little bit more air and stretch again

And we wait a little bit more the arms towards the sky And we take a little bit of air and once more And now the sun closes What it is when it closes what it is at night What gives way to the Moon Okay And it opens up again in the morning, stretching the arms a lot stretching stretching stretching stretching because we have a lot of arms left stretching stretching stretching stretching Upwards and upwards as far as we can like rays of sunshine

And the same we can do Together truth We spread our legs a little bit And we take a breath and we open back and now forward but this time a hug But rays of sunshine They come together okay Also as part of yoga as part of nature we have the plants as we see here that we are surrounded by wonderful flowers But the plants to be born first are seeds okay little seeds then let's make a seed what is this posture That we call it the seed or it can also be a rock and it's like this With its head in the ground With the arms so they fall to the ground relaxed And very very very very very very very very very chiquitinas because we are the chiquitina seed So If the seed was a rock this time I could go And sit down On the rock I sit In Lua but since I weigh a little more, I'm going to let Lua sit on my seat, ok So we are going to do here The seed The rock And Lua sits And if you want she can lie down there And he is resting on the rock sunbathing beautifully And here I am stretching my back We're doing well, aren't we Okay And there you slowly get up And you go back to make a seed okay This time Lua is going to be a seed because I'm going to do a very funny thing What is Water the seed because for all these plants and trees to become what they are they need a lot of water

And a lot of sunshine then I'll take My seed sprinkler And let's give away a little bit to see what happens Ah it's growing In a small plant But there in another little bit of rain that we talked about it by whatsapp And it grows Another little bit more a bigger plant Sun and water and One more rain until it becomes In a tree Y I who am another tree And when we are two trees together, what is this posture? Okay for that we have to have a lot a lot a lot a lot a lot of balance because we have to stay like that Very stretched upwards And we look ahead to a place that we really like so that we don't take our eyes off it We imagine A giant ice cream that is watching us And we stare at it and it stares at us and if we are lucky enough to eat it, so much the better

We shake hands And so we are two trees that still much more fun Okay because we help each other But the trees are not there so peacefully because it can be windy too

And with the passing wind That moves And also if we have to try to keep there stretched out without falling and then it rains too Until suddenly When spring is passing by Branches are coming out and stretches And now slowly From the tree What can come out Flower Okay, how the flowers come out, so we make ourselves fall from the tree as a flower

We do not fall from the tree And we become In bloom Okay And with hands or arms below the knees And we are going to try to stretch our back well and now we try if we can Spread our legs a little bit more That we are the flower We are closing our legs a little bit more Because at night the flower closes when there is no sun but when it sees the sun it opens again And now we can still make it even more fun when we do it Together because that's what yoga for kids is all about we work all the time Or we try to do it as a couple or in group then both with the hand underneath We shake hands And there let yourself we are still keeping much better and more stretched out The double flower Very good From here We have a game which is the game of the tree sticks because the tree apart from having Flowers is full of branches and Sticks for that we get back on our feet because we are going to go With a kind of movement is worth counting One two three and when you make a two three it means that you can move wherever you want to go move the body a little bit like this and we say stop And you become a stick Okay, in tree pole which can be any posture that you can think of if you've observed nature a lot and we see the number of different sticks that there are anyway so what we try to do with the body okay, then we move like this One two three stick And you have to stay very still which is the hardest part of this game and try again 1, 2 and 3

One two three stick And we can fall And several times which is also the fun of this game

We can do it in pairs because One two three, stick And so it helps us more because we are helping each other

Ok and then we are getting different shapes of sticks right Okay and then here I want to know what's also in the trees that I am surrounded by also Some of them that I have seen passing by Butterflies Ok then the butterflies first have a process From the moment they are born Until they become butterflies The first are what we call the Caterpillar How complicated in Spanish the Gusano de seda vale and we will do With the belly on the floor that this one is fun Let's try to keep moving Upward Without the arms then let's go Climbing Crawling without arms See This one is a little bit difficult especially for the younger children who find it a little bit harder to crawl without arms

Ok and when we have crawled The worm is releasing pieces of silk, we return each one to our side And we become into assholes like this With the knees to the chest yes very very very very close together as much as we can and then we go rolling a little bit from side to side so slowly Until one day With the sun again the butterfly started to come out then it would release One wing and another wing one leg and another leg And suddenly it's getting on And it becomes In a beautiful butterfly Okay then the butterflies that make the wings move are not then we move the wings But then we have the beautiful song of the butterfly I'm going to sing it in spanish ok Fly butterfly fly butterfly fly butterfly Fly butterfly fly butterfly fly Fly butterfly Fly butterfly fly butterfly fly butterfly To fly Now we are going to eat and the butterflies have these little antennas to detect the pollen of the flowers, then we say Eat butterfly Butterfly eater butterfly eater eat now Eat butterfly Butterfly eater Butterfly eater Eat already And after what he does he stretches too then it stretches a wing And on the other And we say stretch butterfly stretch butterfly stretch butterfly To stretch, and now we close the wings again And now it was time to sleep And now he sleeps butterfly Sleeps butterfly Sleep butterfly Sleep now Well then, as you see every Yoga posture That we do what is an animal can do all the process since it is very small Until it is becoming In the big one as we have been doing here right and then from here From the butterfly Let's see what other animals we detect in the nature Because now that I'm here Stop Listening for sounds Well, I'm hearing a lot of birds, aren't I And the trees are full of birds all over the place then we are going to do A bird For that we stand up again From the tree And in this case we are going to make an eagle Okay that in this area besides many eagles The eagle is a little bit more complicated because we have to cross our legs and arms to some very strange sides But we are going to try a little bit step by step right Let's put our hands on our hips because it helps us to have a little bit more balance

And we are going to cross one leg In front of the other And we bend the lower knee a lot so that it stays there well Stuck in there you can't go anywhere ok And now let's stretch our arms out there if we can

And we cross them in front One ahead of the other As forming a letter X And we bend the elbows there And if you want to stay there Or if you can you roll one hand with the other and it grabs on

Ok and there you have to try to stand still like an eagle on the prowl Okay then we have to try to be very quiet, very still

this one takes a little work So now let's try it with the other leg, it's worth the opposite leg to the one we did before

then we bring the hands back to the waist

Crossing one leg over the other we try Always the more we bend the lower knee the better balance we're going to have, so we try there

or we can also grab our friend or our mother or parents if they are there

We try to tuck our leg in there, well hidden by the knee in the back, okay, and we're out of here

We can stretch those arms across in front of each other

And with the elbows bent here we try to join the palms of our hands together And we go down a little bit more towards the ground if we can To leave there That moment of looking towards a fixed point which is where we can really concentrate on the balances

As we said before the eagle on the prowl And from there we unraveled mother of mine From here From the eagle that was also in the tree There was that little danger okay That a little fire was created because we were with so much sun and to want the fire is okay if we want it

To create us manually as human beings we are going to have a very cool posture Let's call it the candle posture and let's do the two together okay We're going backwards You see we put our butts together a little bit more because we are going to put our feet together Ok And from there to the one two and three we try to go up and see

you go up, that's okay then I'll There is something Colua you see we are there holding our legs together And it is a form of sail Okay Which would be like a form of bonfires and you see it from the outside and if we're more kids then we all put our feet together on the Center okay And slowly we go down Now we're going to make this candle position a little bit more separated so that you can see how we do it for sure

That you guys at school or probably when you're out there in the garden

you do it right From here We lie down on the floor and stretch our fingers upwards a little bit to bring our hands towards our back

and then we stretch a lot towards the sky And it has the shape of a sail Okay I'm going to Lua Why when we are Today is a child's birthday, we can also take advantage of it at the school Lighting candles Then you can put all the children The posture of the candle and goes the teacher and he is lighting a candle, like this on the big toe And when we blow out the candle What happens tiririri That shuts down and stays on the ground Cool So After the fire There is coming a great rain a great storm in order to appease and bring peace and calmness back in nature And then come The lightning Okay and we're going to make these rays What are they from the ground because it turns into a tiny little sparkle So and so and so and so down And when we count three Taking a flying leap, throwing your arms and legs as far as they will go, it's okay

Like lightning one two and three and one more come on A little bit down And one two and three Wow And you can repeat it as many times as you want Then if you are a little bit small And you have your mom or dad to pull you up, then you can start at the bottom

So so so so so way down and one two and three and and they help you jump up towards up more fun for you okay and you become a lightning bolt as you like

Already Lightning that is side-to-side with legs Ok we put it like this And now from 1 2 and 3 pum and to the 1, 2 and 3 Knees bent and to the other side I catch your arm And at 1,2 and 3 to the other side I'll come more this way, okay

Very good and so little by little we turn this way and that way and that way That we are making a twist Which is like A lightning bolt But When the rain was stopping It met the sun That the wonderful rainbow was coming out Truth For the rainbow I'm going to do it for a moment, ok Lua We'll do it together Because the rainbow has this shape really like a bow But we can do it in a little bit easier way Okay one I can rest a knee here If it's hard for him and you just stand there a little bit Or we can do with the other leg on top And we can stretch the upper arm If it doesn't work out too well we can raise the leg on top And if you can you hold your foot there and stretch your foot up but that's it now

When we go a little bit further it's okay for now there

If you want to do you and me You can stand looking over there so we can see how we do it

Like children And me over here that's so that's We can do it in one Two and three come on let's stretch well towards the rainbow it's like we want to touch the sun, it's a little bit like touching the sun

Cool Very nice and now to the other side Let's see we go to the other side I change the place for you Y The same we support one hand we can leave one foot supported in front ok To make the posture easier for us or we can stretch there Arm and leg and there we stretch upwards There we open the whole rainbow And down we go Very good Lua Okay From here I don't know how you are at home if you are getting a little bit tired or what

We are already noticing that we are doing the postures Ok then from here I wanted to do that the night will come because we have already spent this wonderful day in the nature And the night also has many Animals Lights in the sky etcetera that we can represent with our body then one of them is the star Ok we are going to do it in several ways One star that we can do by ourselves with our hands and with our arms stretched out to the sides there, you can even go up A little bit upwards Okay with the star peaks Or we can make it Joints With the leg stretched out in front And the outside arm stays outside is going to attempt Reach as far forward as possible to reach forward Okay so your foot will reach your leg Or if you want a little bit more, you can take the foot of your mother's father's partner's foot of your Friend And from here The remaining arm Stretched upward And then we're going to turn our body upwards as much as we can, as if we're looking towards the sky To see even more stars There are very well Slowly We go down Why do we want to go the other way right so we cross you and me And the other leg stays in the middle is always very important when we are llogater

Always both sides so that the body stays in the middle

Balanced and that we don't do more one side than the other so we always repeat we do things on one side and then we try to do them on the other side then the outside arm this time

Lengthen forward As far as we reach our own foot or the partner's foot and with the inside hand And open we turn we turn we turn we turn to look towards the sky All right and now from here slowly We release Because we are already to finish A little bit today the night warriors ok For the night warriors we are going to stand up a little bit And this time we are going to join hands because always two together we have more strength, right? The warriors of the night the warriors of peace So I don't know we spread our legs as wide as we can look a little bit more to that side Just keep it right in the middle foot that's it And we stay with the two feet together with the outside foot we turn So from here we bend our front leg and we stretch out there as far as we can there that like two warriors there good

Strong we hold on we take advantage of pulling on each other ok to stay there as long as we can That's it And now the 2 warriors join hands

With the feet in front Let's leave one leg in front and the other leg a little step backwards

There is we bend the leg and stretch our arms there We can Release one arm and we get one arm on top And the other one back there And these night warriors or the warriors of peace They are the ones that are going to protect us while we sleep Then they will bring us some very nice dreams They will bring us That our wishes will be fulfilled and they will be there Protecting us while we rest okay Then Let's go to Relaxation to the final part of the practice that we always do in yoga which is very important to do because it is where we It really builds up All the benefits all the good things that we have been doing while moving our body with the postures then I'm going to tell Lua to lay down Face up That is With his arms there very relaxed there as if he was sunbathing

I'm going to sit down a little bit And it is the posture at the end of the class the posture of relaxation

We can do it in many ways because if we are uncomfortable in this way we can lie down on our side with our knees

bent So if it bothers you you can also lie down That's very well how Lua shows us You can stay like this Or you can also lie on your stomach With your hands supported like this As if they were a pillow All right, the important thing is that you're in a comfortable position, okay? And here Let's just Close your eyes for a moment To Try Feeling breathing that our breath is the air coming in and going out Our body enters through the nose sometimes exits through the mouth or it goes in through the nose and sometimes comes out through the nose again

and when we are Just listening to the breaths is a very relaxing sound that just listening to it helps us to calm down

it doesn't mean that we fall asleep but we do fall asleep

How awake in a dream that is much more beautiful because we can see beautiful things we can dream With things and feel that they are there And in this case as we have been so connected today With this day and this nature that we have around us we can dream that we are floating on a cloud it's wonderful the effect like absorbent cotton that we are lying on this cloud And from there we are Rising with each breath the cloud rises a little higher Upward and when we exhale the cloud It leaves you That it rests on it as if it were a absorbent cotton that cradles you that shelters you And simply with this thought From being in that cloud of absorbent cotton you can stay there

Just a moment And while you feel that this cloud is taking you away Through the sky you can go thinking about Your favorite dream in your favorite place Where you like to be where you feel good with the people you love the most Always thinking In something we like that makes us feel good To be able to be there A little moment with ourselves We can do a little bit more Long relaxation at home because that It does not have exact time if uino is at ease can be longer may be shorter The important thing is that we are even A couple of minutes, a little while in that silence and in that listening of our breathing Our thoughts And I'm going to ask Lua that little by little little by little by little you stretch yourself Arms and legs As if you will get out of bed We stretch there a little bit even You can yawn To go slowly and very slowly dropping to the side with bent legs And little by little Sitting And from there we are going to finish Looking at each other because we're going to do one last song The farewell song of today's class What's called my little light The little light is all The part of the heart Okay around there we have a little light that although we do not see it is there And in fact sometimes I have asked the children in the classrooms if they notice a light and they tell me that they notice it

But sometimes it turns off too and it's okay because we can turn it back on again, that's the magic of yoga

So it's a song that greets our lights right it goes like this My little light greets your little light little light your little light your little light My little light greets your little light Namaste Well Well let's also say namaste for all of you who are there at home And I hope you enjoyed yourselves and that you had a good time at this practice and we look forward to seeing you

In the next one with many more things to share together A kiss And see you soon
