The COVID-19 pandemic has turned life on its head for families everywhere, including many young children who are experiencing a total disruption to their daily routine.
While we’re all spending more time at home, Qatar Foundation International (QFI) is happy to share an Arabic Yoga video series, based our Arabic Yoga Lesson Plan(available in Arabic and English), developed with support from QFI by Arabic educator Eden Bass with interpretation by the amazing Caroline Robinson. Ms. Bass and Ms. Robinson are both educators at the Arabic Immersion Magnet School in Houston, Texas.
These videos, along with the attached lesson plan, serve as a guide for families to learn some yoga poses along with Arabic language vocabulary and songs. They are especially geared towards children aged 4-7 (parents are encouraged to join in the fun!).
Arabic yoga offers kids a chance to interact with language learning at home while staying active. We’ll be releasing a new video every week for the next month so stay tuned!
