Your Yoga Game of the Month is :
One Behind - A Sequence Game
Terrific Concentration Builder
ABOUT THIS GAME:
This month I thought let's have something different. So here is a sequence game called 'One Behind'.
It's a terrific concentration builder as well as one of those games where children love to rise to the bait that challenges their powers of concentration.
8-11 years (Years 4 - 6)
Use your sequence as long as it's constant ... or use mine

WHAT TO DO
Teach the sequence over a few weeks till they know it well.
Explain to class that you will lead the sequence. That you will begin by saying and doing the first posture, upon which they will do and say nothing . Then, when you have said and done the second posture in the sequence they will say and do the first posture. In other words they will be ONE BEHIND.
You could ask one of the children to lead.
1. Two behind
2. Three Behind, and if you are very, very brave
3. Four & Five Behind .
They will love this
