We had a yoga instructor come to BestStart Waltham Kindy to introduce the kaiako (teachers) and children (tamariki) to mindfulness yoga through language - Te Reo Maori. 

The tamariki were asked to take their shoes off and sit on the whariki (mat). The children listened to the instructor as she gave instructions in Te Reo and demonstrated the different yoga poses. 

This was a great active experience for all children to learn Te Reo Maori through active exploration of our bodies! All tamariki were able to participate individually to their own skill level and challenge themselves outside of their comfort zones with some really tricky poses.
