Kids Yoga: Teaching the 8s

Kids Yoga: Teaching the 8s | Yoganomics® | Scoop.it
Different kids learn in different ways. The more you can combine the eight intelligences, or ways of learning in your yoga classroom, the more kids will take in.
briancastellani's insight:

The Eight Intelligences


  1. Verbal Intelligence: Learning with words, writing, reading, talking, rhyme.
  2. Mathematic Intelligence: Learning with numbers, counting and problem solving.
  3. Visual Intelligence: Learning with images, coloring, drawing, building, creating.
  4. Kinesthetic Intelligence: Learning through movement, dance, touch, physical poses.
  5. Musical Intelligence: Learning with song, drumbeats, rhythm and sound patterns.  When in doubt, sing instructions to kids.  This is attention-grabbing and helps with memorizing.
  6. Social Intelligence: Learning by playing, sharing, communicating, cooperating, doing group or partner poses or games.
  7. Intrapersonal Intelligence:  Learning by introspection, intuition, journaling, reading, reflecting.
  8. Naturalist Intelligence: Learning through nature, whether its playing outdoors, taking care of animals or pets, or reading stories about animals.



A really impactful kids yoga class will combine several of these intelligences, for maximum learningandfun.  How can these intelligences show up in your classroom?  Try reading yoga books together, or reading picture books in which you can act out different animal characters with yoga poses.  Try holding a pose while counting, by 2s or 3s, all the way up to 20. (and then try counting in Spanish or another language, to also incorporate verbal intelligence)   Sing a song to remember the Sun Salutation.  Create “Asana Art” in which you are drawing a picture of your friend who is holding Warrior 1.  Write a story about the first yogis in India.  Create a new group-pose for you and your friends called “Zoo Keeper,” in which you depict different zoo animals playing.  The more creative the teacher and students can be together, the better!  That way, no learner is left behind, since no two yogis learn in the same way.

briancastellani's insight:

“What’s important for parents to know is, if their child is battling stress or anxiety, the simple things matter,” says Sylvie Monfette, principal of E.P. Scarlett.


“(Parents need to) take time to listen without judgment, making sure (kids) have down time, are eating well, getting enough sleep, making sure that their interests, passions and abilities are considered in their choice of post-secondary plans.”


Monfette adds that having students experience greater independence gradually will build their resilience and prepare them for life after high school.


“It’s also important for parents to be able to recognize when their child’s anxiety is past the normal range and when help is needed and may include counseling, mental and medical supports,” she says.

Colombians Practice Yoga to Heal Cultural Wounds

Colombians Practice Yoga to Heal Cultural Wounds | Yoganomics® | Scoop.it

For five years, an organization called Dunna: Creative Alternatives for Peace has encouraged the practice of yoga for both victims and ex-militants of the ongoing Colombian conflict.

briancastellani's insight:

"To prove that public funds have been well spent, Dunna’s researchers tracked yoga’s effectiveness in a controlled study of 45 demilitarized individuals who took one-hour classes twice weekly for four months. Results showed a 48.5% decrease in symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), compared to a group not in the program. When the yoga course was expanded to five more cities in Colombia, students again reported an easing of symptoms, and reduced drug and alcohol use."

India gets minister for yoga and traditional medicine

India gets minister for yoga and traditional medicine | Yoganomics® | Scoop.it
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India has set up a ministry to promote alternative therapies such as yoga and traditional ayurveda medicine, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarks on a mission to raise awareness and the appeal of home-grown health treatments.Modi has repeatedly called for greater use of India's health remedies and exercises, part of a push to promote traditional learning. During his first address at the United Nations in September, he encouraged more people to take up yoga and called for an International Yoga Day."This is our system and it has not received enough prominence. We will take it to the masses," said Shripad Naik, who took charge of the ministry on Tuesday.The formation of the ministry comes days after the government unveiled plans to set up a regulator for traditional drugs. India wants to expand its presence in the estimated $100 billion global market for alternative medicine.Ayurvedic and other types of traditional medicine, called unani and siddha, are popular in smaller towns, and yoga has a huge following across India and in the West. Homeopathy also finds wide acceptance in India.

Jois to The World

Jois to The World | Yoganomics® | Scoop.it
The heirs of Ashtanga-yoga guru Krishna Pattabhi Jois have partnered with the wife of a billionaire hedge-funder to market the master’s teachings—throwing many Jois disciples off balance.
briancastellani's insight:

Jois To The World

 

Most people who practice Ashtanga think they’re doing something ancient and Eastern. But the provenance of the sequences is murky. The official story is that Krishnamacharya developed the physical postures after finding the remains of a 2,000-year-old manuscript in Calcutta’s library. He believed it to contain postures referenced by the sage Patanjali in a centuries-old text called the Yoga Sutras. Part of the appeal of Ashtanga is its authenticity; to uphold that, there isn’t supposed to be any modifying of the series.


But the remains of the Calcutta manuscript no longer exist, and recently work by a scholar named Mark Singleton has cast some doubt on how important physical postures were in ancient yoga. The Yoga Sutras are more about achieving detachment from your measly existence than about contorting your body into impossible positions, and Singleton posits that the postures we know as Ashtanga may have grown out of a “synthesis” during Krishnamacharya’s time in Mysore of Western and Indian “gymnastic forms.” In his view, authenticity is the wrong way to think about yoga, because yoga is an ongoing evolution, not something static.

briancastellani's insight:

There's a feeling that mandates from on high are intruding into their classrooms, robbing them of control over how they teach, and it crosses districts and counties; high- and low-performing districts; rural, suburban and urban schools. For 12 teachers with more than 225 years of experience The Journal News talked to over the last several days, it all adds up to low morale.  


"It's discouraging. You put a lot of time and effort into what you do. In the classroom, things are great. You're building positive relationships with students and parents," said Dan Johnson, a chemistry teacher at Suffern High School in the Ramapo Central district. "None of that is mentioned in the political discussion. You hear that schools are failing and that we've got to get rid of these bad teachers."

The teachers who have been able to think outside of the box have influenced me most.
briancastellani's insight:

The teachers who have been able to think outside of the box have influenced me most. Like the dance teacher who sent me to Kundalini Yoga classes to get some much needed upper body strength. And another dance teacher who sent me to Kundalini Yoga to learn how to breath and dance at the same time haha! Ravi Singh, whom I teach with has of course, been a major influence to me as well as many other yoga teachers today and people from all walks of life. The amazing gift he gives is being able to perceive peoples gifts (we all have them), draw them out, and encourage us to use those gifts. When you learn how to use your gifts to make a difference in this world. Its incredible. Life suddenly flows like magic.

My Name is Brian Castellani

My Name is Brian Castellani | Yoganomics® | Scoop.it
My Name is Brian Castellani | These are the Chronicles of Brian Castellani | This is www.Castellani.me | Morning Dew | San Francisco
briancastellani's insight:

My Name Is Brian Castellani 

On December 4, 1993, I was in an altercation where I suffered a head injury with brain damage.  I was in a four day coma and when I came to, my eyes had crossed, I had trouble speaking, I lost all equilibrium and mobility on primarily my left side, and could not walk unassisted.


I was at Harborview Hospital in Seattle for a month doing physical therapy and speech therapy.  I eventually left the hospital in a wheelchair, later graduated to a walker, and then for some time after, I used a cane.  The doctors prognosis of my injury upset my parents and friends a great deal, and it is probably one of the lowest points of my life.  I also feel it is 100% responsible for my tenacity, resilience and ability to have courage when there is absolutely no reason to.


Doctors conveyed that physical rehabilitation would be a life long process, and that people with traumatic brain injuries have little to no hope of significantly changing.


In retrospect, the information was sparse and fragmented and the negative “sentences” that the doctors gave was more of a poor legal disclaimer. Even though there are effects today, it wasn’t an accurate hypothetical of my situation.  Life deals tough breaks, and in many head injury cases the situation is much worse.  How was I to know what would happen in the future?  How is anyone supposed to know, for that matter?  They didn’t, and no one can foretell the future.

From yoga to soft power, from digital diplomacy to the role of states in foreign policy, India’s envoys got a taste of what the PM would like them to internalize when they represent India’s interests.
briancastellani's insight:

When over 100 top diplomats meet, you would expect them to discuss weighty issues – India’s place in the world, high strategy, the volatile neighbourhood, the China question – and get drowned in policy matters. But the sixth annual conclave of the Indian heads of missions, which wrapped up on Tuesday, was different.


Besides the perennials of foreign policy, there was a distinct set of dishes on the menu to equip the ambassadors to be more effective diplomats.


And in all this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s stamp was unmistakable. From yoga to soft power, from digital diplomacy to the role of states in foreign policy, India’s envoys got a taste of what the PM would like them to internalize when they represent India’s interests.
