Summer is here! Get ready to play a favorite Summer Yoga Game!.

One of my favorite things about teaching yoga for kids is that there are so many fun and creative ways to introduce poses. I love creating a yoga game for kids and Beach Ball Yoga is one of my favorite summer games to play wiht kids. This yoga game can be played with any size group of any ages. Family-friendly and fun! All you need is a beach ball to get started! Trust me. They love this one.

HOW TO PLAY BEACH BALL YOGA

1. Find a blow-up beach ball. I got mine here.

2. With different colored permanent markers write a variety of summer words on the beachball. (See the examples below)

3. I like to make my poses summer and ocean theme related. Below are some examples. Note: I only write the bold-faced word on the beach ball.

Beach Ball Yoga with A Twist

Get ready for yoga beach ball! This yoga game can be played with any size group of any ages. All you need is a beach ball to get started!

Beach Ball Yoga with a twist in Boat Pose

Looking for a little beach ball challenge? Have everyone sit in the circle and pass it around the circle again, but not with their hands – with their feet!

I like to explain how this is similar to a group Boat Pose. It is a good core workout as well especially with holding that pose and all the laughter.
