Partner Yoga for Kids Class

What a blast it was to be back at Athleta for another fun kids yoga class. This time leading a Partner Yoga for Kids class. We warmed up our bodies with exercises to get our hearts pumping. Then got ready for our partner and group poses.

We got into out Partner Poses using our Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards.

The yoga cards were perfect as we worked on mastering the 4 challenge levels with the included partner poses.

We continued with some fun team building group yoga poses with our Down Dog Tunnel. The kids loved it and did great!

We closed class with a Stillness and Savasana and with a few deep cleansing breaths. If you are looking to try out some more partner poses, get our Kids Yoga Partner Pose lesson plan or see our tips on partner poses here.

Grab a Buddy for these Fun Kids Yoga Partner Poses and Guide

Kids love yoga partner poses! They are fun to do and they build trust and community with one another and the group. These partner poses can be done at home, school, camp, yoga class or anywhere you have kids ready to try something new and have fun.

I try to incorporate partner or group poses in every kids yoga class as it gives everyone a common goal to work toward and builds confidence when mastered.

When I created the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards, I purposely incorporated partner poses for some of the challenge poses. The partner poses are built on progression so gives the children a goal to work toward and it so much fun to achieve together!

Tips on working with partners for a kids yoga class

  • Try to have kids partner up with those of similar size.  All partner poses can be modified, but it is a good idea to start this way.
  • Have the partners get to know one another before practicing the poses. Take a moment for them to introduce themselves to one another and pose a few questions that they need to answer as something they are good at or a favorite game to play.
  • Have one pair of partners demonstrate the Partner Pose before everyone tries it. As the partner pair is demonstrating, this is a good time to talk about proper form and any safety concerns. Although yoga partner poses are safe and fun, it is still a good idea to remind kids to take it slow. They will naturally be excited to get right into the pose so this will help them remember.
  • After the partners have practiced the featured yoga pose for 1-2 minutes. Have one group demonstrate the pose one last time. Kids love to show off the poses with their partners.

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.

Winter Yoga Class With Kids at Athleta

Here is a peek at our fun kids winter yoga class at Athleta over winter break.

What fun we had making Snowflake Salutations, sledding with our yoga mats and making Gingerbread men.  That was just the beginning! There were so many plush snowballs to select from which featured a different winter yoga poses to learn and practice. We became snowball buckets, snowballs, ornaments and holiday trees.

It is great to work together to accomplish a goal and we did that with our  partner poses of Icicle and Snow Castle. We also loved the game Blizzard in the Forest which is perfect for working on balance and concentration. Find out how to play this yoga game and much more by getting our monthly newsletter here.
