Where and how are yoga classes organised for children?

Approaches existed very early on for not just teaching children yoga in their free time or in courses. As yoga undisputedly offers a whole host of benefits for children's development and learning, the idea of bringing yoga to places where this predominantly takes place, namely in schools, kindergartens and after-school care facilities, suggested itself.
There are now already a whole array of schools and kindergarten in Germany that regularly offer yoga during normal teaching or care hours. It would be very desirable if this form of teaching could spread further, as courses offered on an extracurricular basis, at sports clubs or other venues are far from able to reach all the children who could benefit from yoga.
