"Use the chair yoga and exploring emotions yoga everyday. It got so bad (good really) I had the Dean of Student Behavior sending kids to my classroom after recess when I did yoga as part of their behavior plan. I ended up with 30+ kids in my room doing yoga. I asked that they either give me a room to do yoga in or have the other teachers do it in their rooms. Lol. Guess who still gets extra kids because other teachers don’t want to take 10 minutes to relax their kids?" - Gayle B.

Exploring emotions for just ten minutes a day can:
- Ensure you have a routine for regularly checking in with your children’s emotional states… that goes beyond simply asking “How are you?” and getting a shrug or a scream.
- Help you work with your children around big feelings… even when they lack the words to express their feelings and emotions adequately.
- Provide you with a regular tool to help your children breathe, calm down, and self-regulate… even when schedules are packed and unpredictable or learning is partially/fully at a distance.
- Teach children simple self-regulation and resiliency skills that you can easily incorporate at home or in a classroom… without having to plan, think about it, or find new resources.
- Give children new tools to regulate their bodies and emotions… so they can manage the ups and downs that come with changes in routine, schooling, and schedules.
- Encourage healthy interactions and connections between you and your children and between peers or siblings… even if children are frustrated, short-tempered, or agitated.
This simple way for kids to label and move through their emotions through yoga, mindfulness, and breathing exercises will provide new tools and helpful strategies for students and children to thrive… today (during these unprecedented times) and for many years to come.
- Be prepared with a visual tool and movement exercises at a moment’s notice when your child may be confused or unsure of what is really going on in the world.
- Provide feeling-specific exercises based on what they have identified, making it easy to explore the feelings at hand right away.
- Have a fresh approach to exploring emotions and big feelings in a way that kids can easily understand so that they have an outlet and language to express what they’re feeling, when they’re feeling it.
- Have a handy visual way for children to identify and match their current emotions when shyness arises or words might not be readily available for them.
- Provide new ways for kids to interact, connect, and share feelings with one another, even when they’re asked to do so at a distance or potentially with a mask on in person.
- Provide new language along with movement so that children are better able to voice their current fears and worries.
- Gain the confidence to bring movement, mindfulness, and meditation to help anxious children better self-regulate so they can be ready to learn, connect, and thrive.
- Discover how to easily embed or integrate mindfulness, breathing, and yoga poses during a child's day, regardless of whether it's distance-learning, in class, or a hybrid situation.
- And much, much more.
Spark your imagination and get your kids to self-regulate, breathe, and move!
