Yoga With Kids and Montessori Motor Movement

Yoga With Kids

"Watching a child makes it obvious that the development of his mind comes about through his movements. Movement helps the development of the mind, and this finds renewed expression in further movement and activity. It follows that we are dealing with a cycle because mind and movement are parts of the same entity."~Cosmic Education, Ursula Thrush.

 A motor movement exercise that does not require a lot of physical space is yoga. You can do it in a large group or a small group, or one-on-one. You can also let children choose it as an activity to do on their own, like the red rods.

There are lots of ways to introduce and incorporate yoga into your home or daycare environment, as well as books to explore!

Below are some awesome, Montessori-friendly kids' yoga resources to help you get started!
