Be a Flamingo, Frog, or Boat: Yoga Poses to Do With Your Kids
Here's a group of yoga poses your kids will love to try. Yoga and kids make such a great fit because children naturally love to move their bodies and use their imagination to act like animals and other things in their world. Just keep in mind that younger tots will prefer hopping and ribbiting in Frog pose rather than holding still, so encourage them to move around and make noise.
Use these poses to play a game of Simon Says, where you do a pose like Starfish and they copy you. A game of Freeze Yoga is also fun — play some upbeat tunes, and when the music stops, call out a yoga pose (like Boat or Flamingo) and they have to hold the pose like a statue. Or have your kids make up their own yoga poses. When it comes to children and yoga, the most important thing is to be creative and have fun so as they grow up, their love of yoga will grow, too.
