GO ON A RELAXING FITNESS MISSION...YOGA STYLE
The Fitness Adventure Series- Mindfulness Mission is high energy, fun and organized, PE YOGA-themed activity that can easily be used as a warm up, cool down, or instant activity. Students move around the playing area from sign to sign, reading and carrying out the indicated pose or movement and then performing a locomotor movement to the next sign. Each sign has a YOGA student with a name, a pose to perform with a suggested time and an exit box that indicates the locomotor movement to perform with the next YOGA destination to travel to. A true ADVENTURE!!!
There are 15 Mindfulness Mission ADVENTURE signs with a different YOGA kid on each one. The signs are “student friendly” and provide an animated PE student with easy to follow directions. The backgrounds give an authentic “mindfulness feel” to the set the mood and help immerse students in the activity. Students can easily perform the movements with limited instruction and teachers are free to move around to monitor students. The movements are developmentally appropriate for elementary school students (with some previous instruction) and can be used in small or large spaces with little modification. Classes will want to repeat the Mindfulness Mission many times and it will become one of their “favorites” in no time.
This YOGA-based activity can be used in a gym setting, in a classroom or anywhere that you have some space to have kids perform some stationary exercises and locomotor skills. The Fitness Adventure Series- Mindfulness Mission is very easy to set up and can last anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the size of your playing area.
