After much reflection, and contemplation, my learning project took a bit of a turn this week.
After scouring the web for kids yoga videos and ideas, I realized that while there is tons of amazing and useful content out there…something is missing!
This was my big insight…that both Education students and Educators need more support in feeling comfortable and confident to experiment with, and to implement, kids yoga and mindfulness practices into the classroom.
I had a few different ideas for video content: The first would be a video just for Education Students to help find their inner calm. I believe that we need to establish our own inner sense of calm, before we can share this with others. This is a practice that we can grow into and that will shift and change over time.
The next video will focus on establishing and using our inner calm as we seek to support children and other students within the classroom.
This was my first time ever making a Yoga Meditation video. It was a really exciting and interesting process! I am really looking forward to making more videos, and refining my editing skills. For now, this is the best I’ve got!
I hope there is something for you – that you may find helpful along your own path – in this video.

Wonderful video! I just did this meditation with you and it was great! I really loved the setup that you had, I can tell you put a lot of thought and work into it!! I agree that meditation is an important part of everyone’s lives and I think it is so useful in the classroom with getting all our students to the right frame of mind to learn!
Great idea Dani, I believe meditation is very helpful these days and students should do it more frequently. I started teaching my daughter how to meditate and she enjoys it. Thank you for sharing.
