Granted some children may be able to be still and quiet while practicing yoga, but not all younger children will. If you are sharing yoga with younger children, making the poses fun can be just as beneficial as the silent yoga practice we see in media. As children grow older, you can transition to a silent practice, but there is no reason not to make yoga fun for all.
I love the laughter that happens when young children try new poses and master old ones. Yoga with kids can be free flowing and less structured than a regular class, this allows for fun, exercise and relaxation. Children’s bodies are meant to move and their minds need to learn. Why not share yoga with them, let their bodies move, let their minds learn to relax, share in some fun times and enjoy your time together.
Each deck contains 26 yoga poses demonstrated by preschoolers. When you flip the card over, you will find written directions for each pose and ideas to use with the children.
