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.
