Fitness Yoga Syllabus
with: Mrs. Christina Gerst
Fitness Yoga (Semester 1)
Days 1, 3, 5 Room 211
Welcome to Fitness Yoga class this Semester. I teach Fitness Yoga each morning and then I travel to Fiske Elementary to teach Fitness and Health classes there for the rest of the day. The best way to reach me is by email. We ask students to come to class by 7:30 ready to practice yoga. Athleisure clothing and a water bottle are a great way to prepare for class.
This semester we are like a buffet of yoga poses! We are sampling out many yoga flows. A yoga flow pattern is introduced each class and students adapt their flow pattern to meet their needs. Each flow can be gentle or made to be more challenging.
In between the flows, students take a rest on their mats to reset and recharge for the next flow. Mindful moments are woven into the class.
Soon students will be able to teach each other their flow and learn from each other.
Cheers and thanks so much for all of your support to our Fitness Yoga class.
Fitness Yoga at WHS
This course is designed for students who would like to learn and use yoga as the focus of their fitness routine. Through a variety of flow routines and movements, and using hatha yoga poses and correct breathing techniques, students will strive to increase their flexibility, balance, and strength. Students will also learn ways to reduce their daily stress levels through regular breathing practice. Creating and performing an original flow yoga routine will be expected of each student in the class.
All of the content and lessons in Fitness Yoga will be driven by these three national physical education standards: Standard 3 and Standard 4 .
