Why yoga for kids?
The purpose of this program is to increase fitness, decrease stress, and improve mental focus in a noncompetitive manner. The poses don't have to be performed perfectly, just be sure to warm up with some light stretching beforehand and, most importantly, have fun!
The 4-H Pledge and Yoga Sequence
The video below demonstrates a short, scripted 4-H-themed yoga sequence, which includes the 4-H pledge, motto, and statements about each of the four H's. It also includes instructions for each of the 8 poses used in the sequence. This sequence is appropriate for use with any audience.
