How to Perform Yoga Poses – Step-by-Step Guide

Get your class into the spirit of stretching and moving with this step-by-step guide on how to perform yoga poses! This friendly information guide spans twelve colourful pages, each featuring a child demonstrating a specific yoga pose. Each page is labelled with a simplified name of the pose and its Indian Sanskrit translation, along with information on the benefits of the yoga pose and a step-by-step guide on how to perform it.

This step-by-step guide on how to perform yoga poses is a fantastic tool for introducing yoga to your class, helping your primary pupils learn the poses in simple steps and promoting their physical and mental well-being. Yoga fosters a non-competitive environment where each child can progress at their own pace. This non-judgmental atmosphere helps build self-confidence and a positive self-image, crucial for healthy emotional development.

Tree (Vrikshasana), Plank (Phalakasana), Boat (Navasana), Hand to Leg (Hasta Pada), Cobbler (Baddha Konasana), Seated (Dandasana), Monkey (Hanumanasana), Easy (Sukhasana), Headstand (Salamba), Mountain (Tadasana), Wheel (Urdhva Dhanurasana), Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Our step-by-step guide on how to perform yoga poses is aligned with areas of the primary national curriculum. This primary resource can be used with your PE and PSHE ideas for activities, display boards, games, teaching material, learning aids, differentiation, homework, and lesson plans.
