Introducing elementary yoga helps keep your students focused on fitness, while also promoting focus and concentration. Non-slip mats provide comfortable, secure footing for a variety of poses, from downward dog to sun salutation! UltraFit™ Mats are available in Rainbow® colors, and our individual Instrux™ mats come in blue with poses printed on the mat.
Encourages Focus and Concentration
Unlike cardio exercises or strength training movements that can cause students to daydream or stray off task due to their repetitious nature, yoga keeps students focused at all times. Each movement requires total body awareness and control to perform and hold, and as students string together poses they’ll be required to focus on both the current position and the movement required to reach the next pose.
Because yoga is a slow-moving, purposeful activity, it also serves to slow down student heart rates and control their blood pressure. Combined with regulated breathing and a calm environment, yoga is proven to bolster focus, concentration, and peace of mind, which is ideal for students who may have issues sitting still or paying attention.
Thanks to the sticky, non-slip nature of these mats students won’t have to worry about sliding or shifting each time they transition between poses. This increases safety and encourages peace of mind, allowing students to master poses freely.
A Total Body Workout
Though yoga is traditionally performed at a slower pace, routines can be sped up to shift the focus from balance and flexibility, to muscle strength and endurance. Quickly and fluidly moving from pose to pose helps build muscle strength and stamina, promoting a complete and total body workout.
Our Instrux™ mats make total body yoga lesson plans for elementary students even easier by displaying a range of poses on the mats themselves. Students need only look down at the mat to see proper forms for each position, and to quickly understand what the next position in the routine is.
