Grounded Kids Yoga: Students will progress through the Grounded Kids Yoga series corresponding to the 7 chakras in the body. Beginner students will learn the Solid Ground Flow poses (Sun Salutations) and earn a red bandana at the end of this session. Returning continue the bandana series until they earn their final bandana (Violet). Once a student completes the bandana series, he/she will create lesson plans to teach and help with bandana testing! In yoga we also play yoga games and do creative partner poses. A favorite yoga lesson was based on Harry Potter spells and chakra poses to help counteract the spells.
Below are the sequences of colors for bandanas which are associated with the chakra corresponding poses: There are 84 Grounded poses categorized into 7 different sequences that correspond to the chakra system. Each category contains 11 poses plus a modified pose.
