Halloween Yoga Poses to Get Kids Stretching!

Oct 28 2010 - 8:03am

Kids should be reaching for more than candy this Halloween [1]! In an effort to get families stretching their minds around activities other than trick-or-treating during the candy-consuming holiday, Pure Yoga is offering A Spooky Kids Kula class in NYC [2] that allows children (and their parents) to transform themselves into all kinds of things — a pumpkin, a spider, a vampire — without slipping into a costume! Not everyone can make the class so the folks at Pure Yoga [3] sent over 10 poses that parents can teach their tots at home. The moves are great for bringing youngsters down from their sugar highs!

Spiders have many legs. Thread your arms under, around, and through your other limbs. Can you walk like a spider? It's easier than it looks.

Spread your wings (arms) wide like a large, black bat soaring in the night.

Owls are famous for making noises in the night. Crouch down like the scavenger and walk around.
