Yoga Na Love It! -
Outcome D (7- 9)-6
Start the unit/lesson by introducing the history
of yoga. The Internet has many resources and information that is
current. Ask a yoga instructor to come in for an introductory lesson
or lessons or ask the local yoga club for a video or a club presentation.
As a class, students will learn some basic
postures in yoga and be able to perform a set routine by the
end of the unit. However, each student will set a personal
challenge to complete other routines or to create their own
routine. Students can pair up or form small groups if other
students would like to attain the same goal/stage.
Students will either perform the stages
in front of the class as a presentation or prepare a yoga
video to be used by other members in the class or for future
Ask students to create a routine and teach it
to another class as a stress management technique (e.g., go into
the grade 6 class to teach a short routine of five poses).
