Setting: Very bright colors with bean bag chairs and flowered rugs, very girly!! The girls all wear pastel colors and each have a different colored mat. Excellent production quality

Music: Light instrumental rock type music which emphasizes the age group of the girls.

Workout:

This workout is great for "preteen" girls, ages 10-12.

The warmup consists of a few rounds of basic sun salutations. This prepares the girls for the standing poses.

Standing poses are next. Warrior 1 & 2 are easy to follow as there is no sun salutations in between. This sequence is repeated 3 times. Triangle followed by side angle are the next poses. Again, they are repeated several times before moving on. The last standing pose is a wide leg standing forward bend with a twist to each side to work the waist.

Kristin then lets each girl pick a pose and demonstrate it. There are 6 girls in the class. (in this brief segment the class doesn't follow along, they just watch each girl demonstrate their favorite poses)

Floor work is next. Here is the sequence:

Full straddle forward & over to each leg.

Butterfly stretch

Pigeon & King Pigeon (this is done on one side followed by down dog, then repeated on the other side) sequence done twice

Cat/cow

Balance pose

Hydrant pose

Down dog

Bow

Boat

Wheel

Then when the class is complete, Kristin has them roll like a ball to relax their spine and then roll up into a standing position.

The girls act professional throughout. (no chatter, unless they are responding to an occassional question from Kristin)


This is a great way for young girls to experience yoga and have fun!
