Partnering with Girl Scouts

5 Dec

1200px-Girl_Scouts_of_the_USA.svgLast night I got to hang out with some awesome seven and eight year old Girl Scouts to work on a yoga badge. I offered storytime yoga for a number of years as a children’s librarian and the troop leaders asked if I could help them out.


I wanted to focus on empowerment and body image and strength (all things that coincide with yoga really nicely). So here’s what we did:

Sun Salutations


Read aloud: One by Kathryn Otoshi


Discussed the story and talked about what makes us feel strong and what we’re good at doing and being.

Strength Poses:

  • Mountain Pose
  • Warrior I
  • Warrior II
  • Warrior III
  • Mountain Pose
  • (repeat for balance)


Read aloud: Zero by Kathryn Otoshi


Discussed what we like most about ourselves and what makes us awesome

Relaxation Poses:

  • Bridge
  • Happy Baby
  • Pull Right/Left Knee to Chest
  • Deep Breathing with quiet music


Although the kids had a TON of energy, I hope they got a little something out of fun program – about what it takes to strong, kind and classy woman!
