Yoga for the soul
Context: Yoga promotes mindfulness and movement. Being quarantined at home means many of us have been sitting for extended periods of time. Practicing yoga is a great way to release tension and take time to clear your mind.
Goals: Age Group: All Ages
Supplies: Time: 20 minutes
An open space
Yoga mat (optional)
Instructions: Take note of how your body feels before beginning the yoga session. Then, watch the following video for guided instruction and take some time to reflect afterwards https://youtu.be/VaoV1PrYft4
Modifications: Take your yoga practice outside to get some fresh air. Play meditation music softly in the background to avoid noise distractions. Meditation music might be any music that is calming and does not steal your attention. Classical music and jazz often work well. Encourage others to join you if doing so won’t cause a distraction.
