Description

This presentation focuses on the importance of using yoga techniques inside the everyday classrooms. In more recent years, it has been noted that yoga has had many positive effects on the lives of adults. Researches have noticed these benefits and wanted to see if the same benefits occur as much for children as they did for adults. This presentation will focus on the benefits yoga has on elementary age children and how to correctly administer yoga in the classroom. Throughout this presentation I will answer the questions: (1) What are the academic benefits of using yoga in the classroom? (2) How can yoga promote self-regulation for students? (3) What techniques should teachers and instructors be using during yoga intervention? These questions play an important role in spreading awareness of the benefits yoga may have on classrooms around the world.
