Other than Spanish I love yoga. I do it at least 4 times a week for quite some time now. If I didn’t end up getting a position this year due to my furloughed position I was going to do the teacher training at the yoga studio I go to, finally. It is every Saturday and Sunday starting next weekend and goes through December. On my hardest days I could almost cry that I am even working and not collecting unemployment while doing teacher training certification.
I believe that without yoga, I would be a mess. It is tough enough already with the amount of times I take a yoga class a week. I think it reminds me to breathe and focus when times are difficult. I use this technique every single day.
My first year teaching I taught PE/Health Immersion. I was able to incorporate some yoga in that class of course because it was PE. Other than that, I haven’t really had the opportunity. I bet it wouldn’t hurt to get the kids to stand up and stretch a bit before we get started. I should try it. Our classes are only 42 mins and it sometimes takes 10 minutes to even get the kids to all sit in their seats and listen so often I don’t try to incorporate anything else than what I absolutely need to accomplish. Maybe it would help though. I can give it a shot.
