Routine vs. Creativity
Sometimes after teaching 16 Yoga classes a week we feel that our creativity is just not there! It can be difficult to come up with something new to add to each class and suddenly we run the risk of classes becoming monotonous instead of fun and creative.
What can we do when our creativity is running on empty?
We found that the answer is simpler then you may think… let the kids be your fuel! Instead of running the risk of falling into the dull routine trap, let your students be the ones who give you the ideas of how to make class fun and creative. Kids love the chance to be the teacher, let them be the ones to lead the class for a moment. Children love it when their opinions and ideas are taken into consideration. They become very excited knowing they were the ones who “invented” a new activity or came up with the idea of what to do next.
Children are very creative and we are sure that you would be impressed with all the new and exciting ideas and activities they can come up with. Give it a try, be open to the idea of letting them be the teacher once in a while, we assure you that everyone in the class will have lots of FUN!
