Plan of attack

Hey there!

What a gorgeous week we have had! Amilee has been really enjoying playing outside in the snow this week and Freya has been loving all the fresh air and sleigh rides!

I have been spending a lot of my quiet nursing times thinking about what I should do for  a learning project this semester. I really want to do something that puts me out of my comfort zone a little bit, but more than that I want to be able to use the tool I have learned and bring it into the classroom with me. So that had me thinking, what kind of teacher am I really going to be?

Should I teach myself piano? I could be the teacher who gathers her kids to sing, and that would be lovely. Should I teach myself to sew, and teach my kids how to make little projects? I finally decided I would like to be the type of teacher who includes yoga into her daily routine for her kids. I know there are tons of benefits of yoga and kids and I am excited to find it!

Amilee really enjoys yoga; she likes to watch YouTube videos such as this one below. When I asked her which one was her favourite, she said “the Elsa one” and then she said “no, I like to do them all!”

We also have a yoga studio in Carlyle, The Lotus Tree, where they have kids yoga available. I have only taken Amilee to one session because it is on the same day she also has skating; but she really loved it. It was really high energy, which I was surprised at.

I am looking forward to learning about, and sharing, the techniques and benefits of yoga for kids.

Bye for now,

Roxann
