Instructional Ideas
  • Invite learners to bring in a yoga mat for a more comfortable relaxation experience; provide yoga mats or cushions for those without their own
  • Lead a short relaxation session when class members are in need of a brain break 
  • Take pictures of each pose to display as reference during the lesson; add pictures of the characters along with the respective poses to engage the Star Wars novice and fanatic alike
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires open space for pupils to stretch without bumping into their peers 
  • Learners who have not seen the Star Wars films may not understand the references, but can still have fun and relax
  • Lists the names of actual yoga poses in addition to the Star Wars-themed names
  • Offers video tutorials and examples
  • The popular theme enhances engagement
  • None
