Yoga and Flamenco for Every/body

¡OLe! ¡Namaste! Youth Flamenco and Yoga update for 3/18/15

After a lot of hard work and a great run through of the (Tangos en Tono de Taranto) choreography,

we played a yoga game that worked so well for the varied ages in the group:

I created 7 packets of 4 cards (using a mix of the Yoga Pretzel Cards and the Yoga Planet Deck) and gave each student one of the packets. They spread themselves out in the room and then created their own yoga sequences with the cards. I loved how the older kids really took time to read each of their cards and practice the poses where the kids who read less were able to use the picture sequences on the back of each card to create the poses.

From the child who is really low energy to the child full of unbridled energy, I loved watching each child enjoying their yoga their way! After a short time, I signaled for them to switch to the next person cards and off they went again.

Next week we will explore turning the poses upside down and on their sides and also adding partners and movement -possibly passing a small ball or beanbag between the hands in the balance poses.
