Getting Kids Active: Cosmic Kids Yoga

I'm SO excited to be linking up for my very first Bright Ideas Blog Hop!

I wanted to share with you all an amazing series of video clips that you may or may not heard of:

Cosmic Kids Yoga

I am always looking for different ways to give my class 'brain breaks' and anything that involves physical activity is ALWAYS a winner in my books!

I came across these set of video clips via a wonderful teacher that I follow on Instagram. Our class were looking at dance and movements to create a fitness routine and I thought of these clips straight away!

Here's why I love them and why the KIDS love them:

1. The lady is SO energetic and engaging with her enthusiasm.
2. The movements are SUPER easy to follow.
3. It fits all learners: kinaesthetic, visual and auditory.
4. Each episode is a story that involves different yoga movements. The kids follow the story and match her movements - they are doing yoga and they don't even know it!
5. Each episode only goes for about 15 minutes - the PERFECT amount of time!
6. They are perfect for the little kids. My class are 7 and 8 years old and they beg me to do it each day!

  Make sure you check them out on YouTube here.
