Thanks to everyone who posted a comment in the DVD contest from Acacia Lifestyles.
Not teaching kids at the moment, except my toddler. And for some reason, she likes to crawl right underneath me when I do Down Dog, and she thinks anytime I’m in plank, that is her opportunity to play horse!
I use craigslist and a local event calendar to market my yoga that I teach at my church.

(thanks Gail – I have had good results with craigslist as well, and the church bulletin – great marketing ideas. I’ll e-mail you about your prize. – Aruna)
Tapping Into The Wealth in the Comments
But rather than moving on I want to highlight a couple of the kids yoga games that came in on the comments that we all may benefit from. Clearly there is a wealth of experience out there:
Some games from the comments:
One of my favorites is ‘Pass the Hoop’
Stand in a circle and hold hands. Let go of your hand and put your arm through a hula hoop then join hands with the person next to you in the circle. Now each person needs to ﬁnd a way to step through the hula hoop and pass the hula hoop around the circle without letting go of each other’s hands.
Children of all ages seem to like this game.

I love playing the Name Asana game.
With the class in a circle, I say my name and demonstrate an asana. Then the next person then does the same and then the whole class does the new name and asana and repeats the name/asana combinations that follow. By the time you go around the circle, everyone knows each others names and you’ve created a fun and creative flow sequence.
I have recently started to teach kids yoga. I am having a lot of fun and really love teaching. I have yet to create a marketing plan, but think it is an important step.
It seems like we’re all teaching and learning too!
There has been such a wonderful response to the Teaching Kids Yoga Training coming up. Very powerful and experienced teachers are registering to add to their skills.
I will make sure we have time in the course to gain from the wealth of the participants. Plus we build our community as well. I invite you to us for the training/upgrading if you are able. (details here)
Thanks for all the comments from everyone, I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
P.S. I haven’t heard from my last contest winner for the Kundalini Yoga Video. Unfortunately some of the comments don’t have a link back with them. Ahh – the learning curve.
The last winner: Yoga Positions, has till the end of this week to contact me to claim her/his prize. If not I’ll choose another comment from that week to win. I’ll keep you posted.
