Similarities of Yoga and Montessori
Both have a calming and centering effect on the child.
Both begin simply and then gradually increase in difficulty.
Both provide movement. (Maria Montessori built movement into the work and eliminated sitting at desks.)
Both yoga and Montessori build peace from the inside out.
Both yoga and Montessori focus inward and increase awareness.
Both yoga and Montessori are non-competitive.
Like Montessori work, the emphasis for Yoga With Children is on the process, not the end product. Enjoy the poses without concern about doing the perfect pose.
Many of the asanas (poses) have names based in Mother Nature, giving a direct
correspondence to many of the terms used in a Montessori environment.
We want the child to be successful in order to build self esteem, so the poses are modified and sequenced to give the child the tools to do them successfully.
There are three parts of a pose: going into a pose, being in the pose, and coming out of a pose with control. These correlate with carrying a piece of
work from the shelf, using the work, and thoughtfully placing a work back on the shelf.
