The Power of Yoga on Kids
Along with being a registered nurse and elementary school teacher, my wife is also a certified yoga instructor. She is super passionate about teaching yoga to kids and often volunteers to go into other classrooms and into PE to do one-off yoga sessions . She is one of my greatest resources when it comes to including yoga as part of my PE curriculum. I have a video here that really sums up just how powerful yoga can be to young people. The video is from my wife's after- school yoga club that she runs each week at Nanjing International School. It is worth the watch! If you want specific yoga advice or ideas to implement, drop me a line and I will pass it on to my wife to answer for you.

I have done yoga as a warm-up activity with my grades 1-4. I would love to know where to get a good series of poses for this age level. Do you recommend a website or literature?
