Yoga Resources for School Counselors

After taking a mindfulness course from YogaEd a few years ago, I’ve been looking for more and more ways to incororpate yoga into my school counseling activities. When we were doing distance learning, it was a great way to give kids a movement break on screen. In person, I like to do chair yoga (also a great course from Yoga Ed on this!) or small sequences for movement breaks and affirmations in the lessons. Sometimes for groups, I use yoga as an opener or closing activity. If you’re not comfortable with yoga just yet, there are so many great resources out there to guide your activities! Keep reading to find awesome online courses, videos, games, and books to use for your school counseling yoga activities.

Cosmic Kids Yoga

If you want an already-made yoga activity for your students, Cosmic Kids is great for younger students! There are different time intervals to fit what you need and so many great themes that kids connect with. My Kindergarteners loved doing Cosmic Kids Yoga last year on distance learning and when I needed to pre-record lessons for days I would be out.
