Janelle sums up today’s article thusly, in a paragraph on Yoga poses: “Yoga is the best, most relaxing way for your students to get their energy out while staying Zen. It’s engaging, but at the same time helps increase students’ energy and focus. Try GoNoodles version of it, or try teaching students a few poses on your own.
