Do you use yoga in your preschool or pre-k classroom? Yoga is a great way to help your little learners refocus and get out rid of extra energy. Here you’ll find 14 of the best kid-friendly yoga videos to use in your classroom.
Best Kid Yoga Videos
If you’ve taught for more than a few days, you know how quickly a class full of young children can become chaotic. Many kids have excess energy and need to move often in order to achieve optimal learning in the classroom.
Yoga can have a very calming effect on kids when used in the classroom daily. If used properly, yoga can help channel and refocus the energy and excitement of your wiggly kids.
While yoga poses can be lots of fun for young children, they can also help reduce stress, boost confidence, expand concentration skills, and develop gross motor skills.
You don’t have to be a certified yoga instructor or pay for expensive yoga classes before you can begin to practice yoga with your kids.
Good preschool teachers understand the importance of incorporating yoga into their daily schedule to help calm and soothe even the most active kids.
Best Yoga Videos for Pre-K and Preschool
You can use yoga any time of the day in your classroom. Some teachers like to start their day with a yoga pose song during circle time or morning meeting. You can even use these yoga videos for kids during your closing circle time, just before your kids go home.
Although there are plenty of fun yoga videos on YouTube for you to use in your classroom, finding time to watch and select the best ones can take up a lot of your precious time. I know you don’t have much (if any!) spare time, so I did all the hard work for you! I’ve listed my very favorite age-appropriate yoga videos for you below.
