Heidi Schuchman, reading specialist, elementary school teacher and children’s yoga instructor through the Adventures in SuperStretch, and Yoga Calm. A long-time yogi, I bring yoga to kids in a variety of settings — school, church, and community. My background in elementary education has taught me that the ability to breathe creates kinder, more compassionate people and allows us to be more present in God’s world.
AHIMSA: TEACHING KINDNESS AND CONNECTION THROUGH CHILDREN’S YOGA
Yoga is breath, and our church is helping children make connections between faith, breath and movement. This workshop will include background information on the Yoga Calm curriculum, reflection on the implementation at one church, and specific strategies and lesson plans for sharing yoga with children in a Christian education setting.
