This is not a traditional freebie, because it is not directly classroom related, however, as the school year is coming to an end (for some of you it has already ended), many of us are focused on goals for the summer, or plans that may or may not involve our classrooms. One of my goals is to focus more on physical fitness and stress relief. For me, that means that I want to do more yoga.
I found an amazing site, called doyogawithme.com that has MANY yoga videos at many levels, focusing on different body areas, for free.
I made myself a calendar (a 30 day plan), that I would like to share with you, in case any of your summer goals are the same. There are two versions in the file, a calendar (July) and a plan that just covers 30 days. Each week it includes 2 rest days, a 40-60 minute routine, two 20-30 minute routines, and 2 shorter routines. There is a mixture of stretching and strength.
Anyone want to join me and see if we can stick with it?
