Yoga for children final

  1. 1. Prepared and presented by Rahul Ajmera Guided by – Pundit Radheshyam Mishra International Yoga Teachers Training Course Conducted by Ujjain Yoga Life Society July 29, 2014 www.yogalife.co.in
  2. 2.  This book is solely for a yoga educator  It gives a modest and successful approach to teach yoga to children in a step to step manner  Talks about the eight Bhavas or states of buddhi  The scope of this book is about Jnana asanas, one of the eight Bhavas  Also, there is an introduction to Dharma, Vairagya, and Aisvarya asanas www.yogalife.co.in
  3. 3.  Dharma, or self-direction  Jnana, or knowledge of one’s body, mind, and soul  Vairagya, or ‘to let go’  Aisvarya, or self-esteem; self-reliance  Adharma, opposite of Dharma  Ajnana, ignorance  Avairagya, attachment  Anaisvarya, incapacities www.yogalife.co.in
  4. 4.  Asanas can be classified into two main categories…  They are Cultural and Meditative postures  They’re 28 Meditative postures. Padmasana, Sukhasana, and Virasana are some examples of Meditative Postures.  They’re 56 Cultural postures. Utkatasana, Ekpadasana, and Bhujangasana are some examples of Cultural Postures. www.yogalife.co.in
  5. 5.  Asanas can be further classified according to some of the bhavas… Dharma • All meditative asanas Jnana • All balancing asanas Vairagya • All forward bending and relaxing asanas Aishvarya • All backward bending asanas
  6. 6.  Children should not be tired. If the child is tired, make sure he or she does a relaxing asana such as Savasana. In addition, make sure your students didn’t eat less than two hours before.  Make sure your students use yoga mats. Children can experience cramps if they do yoga on a tiled floor. Furthermore, children will get cramps if they are in an air-conditioned or windy environment. A paraphrased example… www.yogalife.co.in
  7. 7.  Children tend to be very flexible in their early years. Over time the flexibility is lost. Yoga helps maintain the flexibility.
