5 Kid-Friendly Yoga Poses That Will Open Hearts and Minds

by Sara J. Weis

Love is in the air, and now is the time to let your heart shine. Yes, flowers and candy are a lovely thought for adults this season, but it is also a good time to open your heart and show acceptance and compassion for others.

These heart-opening exercises are especially beneficial for kids and adults who spend the majority of their day slouched in desks at school and work or with their heads bent over screens and books. These exercises take only minutes and will help improve posture and release back and neck tension as well as create an openness in your body and mind.

Head over to Daily Cup of Yoga to read the read and try these amazing heart opening yoga poses.

Get these Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards to help practice yoga at home or school with kids. Find out more here or get our exclusive monthly newsletter for additional fun ways to introduce kids to yoga.

Kid-Friendly Yoga Partner Poses to Help Celebrate Valentines Day

Help celebrate this day of love with kids  by practicing some of these fun partner yoga poses together.

SeeSaw: Have each partner sit facing one another on the mat with their feet touching. They will grasp hands. One partner will lean backwards while the other one leans forward over their straight legs. Continue to slowly seesaw back and forth. This exercise is great for working the core and stretching the hamstrings.

 

Open Heart: Each child should stand behind a partner with one foot back, one foot forward, and knees slightly bent while holding their partner’s wrists. The partner in front leans forward and shines his or her heart forward while the other partner helps support them.

 

Raindrop: Each partner lies on their back with their heads touching. With their arms at their sides, they raise their feet above their heads to touch to make a giant raindrop.

 

Double Boat: Have each partner sit facing each other with knees bent and toes touching. While holding hands, they lift their legs. To help with balance, the bottoms of their feet should be touching. Then the partners, if able, straighten their legs and lean back slightly as if in a “V” shape.

 

Partner poses involve working together to accomplish a goal and that is fun and rewarding. It builds trust and confidence. These partner poses can be done in school, or in a home setting. My own family enjoys trying them together and can be modified for different ages and sizes.

For more yoga partner poses please check out Go Go Yoga for Kids: A Complete Guide to Using Yoga with Kids or our brand new Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards.
