Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can begin class each day by having students complete a yoga pose. To do so, teachers can connect their iPad to a projector and preview the pose first with students. Next, the students can do the pose while the teacher makes sweeps of the room to ensure that students are in the correct position. If a student is struggling with the pose, the teacher can modify it for the student.
  2. As part of a yoga unit, teachers can break students into small groups of four or five. Next, students can complete the series of free courses included in this app. After completing the series, the group can review the poses and then design a 15-minute course. They can then use the TouchCast app to record their own yoga class. After recording the class, teachers can post it to a class website where other students can complete it during class time. Finally, students who took the course can offer feedback to the students who created it by posting what they liked about the class and ideas for improving it.
  3. After becoming familiar with the poses in this app, students can create a top-10 list of their favorite poses and present their list using the FlowVella, Haiku Deck, PowerPoint, or Jimdo app. Included on each slide of the presentation should be an image of the student performing the pose and a short explanation justifying why the pose was selected.
  4. After using the app and becoming familiar with the different poses’ names, teachers can assign students to research why and how each pose received its name. Explanations can be written using the UX Write, Documents Free, or Office Offline app. Once completed, explanations can be shared by posting them to a class website.
