Kids Yoga in the Park

Spring has finally arrived! It was a perfect day to celebrate with Kids Yoga in the Park with Go Go Yoga for Kids and Des Moines Parent. Over 50 kids, parents, and caregivers joined in the outdoor yoga fun.

First we warmed up our bodies with Sunrise and Sunset Salutations followed by some Sunflower exercises. Next we drew a surprise pose from the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards. We practiced and perfected our yoga poses by showing how strong we were with our Warrior 2 jumps, rowing in our Boat Pose, Down Dog kick ups, and Tree Pose balance challenge.

    We practiced our poses with a fun Musical Mats game and completed the class with a very peaceful and relaxing Stillness and Savasana while listening to the sounds of nature all around.

Check out our Kids Yoga in the Park preview below. It was a windy (but sunny!) day. The audio isn’t perfect and we were able to get just a little glimpse of this fun class with video, but will give an idea of the fun we had!

The Go Go Yoga for Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards are an excellent product for parents, teachers, and kids yoga instructors alike! The illustrations are bright and colorful, and the cards can be used in so many different ways. My kids just love practicing the poses, and we can’t wait to try the suggested games. These cards are a great companion to Sara’s book but can also be used on their own. Highly recommend!!cards with bag

–Erin Leach

These cards are awesome! Simple, kid friendly pictures and an inspiring statement to go with each card. I used these in my Kindergarten classroom and was able to quickly and easily teach a handful of poses. There is a card with suggested ways to use the cards and suggestions for games to play with them, too. Will purchase more sets of these to use as gifts and give to fellow educators and parents.

Snowball Winter Kids Yoga Lesson Plan

 

Children love this Snow Much Fun kids yoga lesson plan. All you need is some names of yoga poses and some plush white balls. I found these balls on Amazon.

I used a present box to put the snowballs in. It creates a lot more anticipation when the kids take turns drawing the pose (snowball) out of a box or bag. I like to select just 4-6 yoga poses for the children to learn and practice for each yoga class.

After one pose is drawn such as Tree Pose then all of the children practice that pose before drawing out a new pose.

I model the poses myself or use the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards or the Kids Yoga Challenge App to help demonstrate the pose.

After all of the snowballs have been selected, then it is time to play some yoga games or practice balancing. Have the children try to balance the snowball on their head, hand, shoulder, etc.

Kids have so much fun with this and I am sure you will too!

See more snowballs and kids yoga fun here and in action at Athleta.
