Neohumanist Education

Teaching 8-Limbed Yoga for 3-10 Year Olds

Course Description

This course explores developmentally appropriate strategies for bringing the spiritual practices of the Astaunga Yoga lifestyle into the classroom. These include Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. A significant component embedded in this system is how to nurture and build our spiritual relationship with the Inner Essence. Some emphasis will be placed on incorporating storytelling, drawing, music, drama, and the arts in Astaunga Yoga practices.
