By Desie Arumsari 

This would be a great experience for me to share to you all. My experience of teaching yoga for a semester in a kindergarten: Sekar Harapan Kindergartens, manage by Humanisti Foundation, in Jombang, Ciputat, Tangerang, Indonesia.

About Sekar Harapan Kindergartens

This kindergartens establish few years ago. The humanisti foundation dedicate this kindergartens for pupils have no budget to school. So the pupils study free payment, all fund become responsibility of the foundation. Parents of the pupils working as scavengers, labor, maid, driver. By study here, parents fell relieve.

The curriculum almost the same as other kindergartens. But since 2012, they add Yoga in to the curriculum. So here I am J

Yoga and Therapy Programs

My background in Yoga more than 13 years and as acupuncturist couple of years. So when I  decide to teach here, I give attention to the yoga materials related to Health.

Every once a month me and our clinic team, check health of each pupil. After that, we give them therapy, which is massage and acupressure. Few of them get acupuncture.

Another program we create is Children Therapy Training for parents. How to give therapy to their own children. The material such as how to circulate the meridians, acupressure points, etc.

 meditation for kids

The experience I don’t get in adult yoga class

In this kindergartens class, I fell easier to share the materials. Ha ha ha perhaps they just like white paper, no dogma, no mind. They are free to do each asanas and simple doing the breathing technique. I enjoy looking at them. So beautiful.

At some session, sometime me and the foundation management  (she like to visit our class), become amazed seeing the connectivity of this children with nature. Let me try to share. There is bamboo posture. Than bamboo left and right moving cause of the wind blow. I told the pupils : Lets blew together. Doing this asanas couple of times, than we are feel the wind really blew, even blowing the trees around the area. The nature elements very connected with the children.

Our class begin 7.30 am. The sun directly shines the light at our window. So we say thank to the sun cause give the light energy to us, to earth, to universe. After saying it, the sun light in a very shine but comfortable ray in our eyes. Its amazing !

One asanas is butterfly posture. I said to them, what color butterfly do want? They said : I’m yellow, me brown, I’m white, me black, I’m green. Class becomes noisy. Than together we be as a caterpillar change in to butterfly. Than suddenly there are some butterfly entering our class thru our window. Pupils happy and yelling : it’s the butterfly, butterfly in our class, hurray!

Class full of happy of these children. I just amazed and my mouth cant say anything for seconds. When I back realize, I say thanks, and feel all blessed.

‎good morning sun shine

Well, that’s my experience in yoga for kindergartens. We get connected in many ways. In nature, movements, breathing, mind, creation. I wish my writing here connect with your heart.

Thank you for reading this article. May our children be blessed and shine 🙂
