Yoga Triangle Tag: Yoga Games for Kids

Yoga Triangle Tag: Yoga Games for Kids

Tag is one of the classic yoga games for kids and often a favorite. They love playing with this twist by using Triangle Pose. First, learn how to safely teach Triangle Pose to the children and practice this pose with them.

Once everyone has practiced Triangle Pose then you are ready to play Triangle Tag!

How to Play Triangle Tag:

Ages: 5+

Players: 8+

Materials: None, but sometimes when playing tag with children I recommend using these “pool noodles” as they help with tagging and any accidental pushing. I cut the pool noodles to around 12 inches which provides the perfect size to whoever is “It” to safely tag the other children.

  1. Determine out of bounds lines dependent on the size of the group. Select one person to be “It.” The person who is “It” chases the other kids and tries to tag them.
  2. When she successfully tags a player, the player must freeze in Triangle Pose.
  3. Triangle Pose creates a tunnel which another player must crawl through to unfreeze them.
  4. If a player is tagged while trying to unfreeze another, they must stand in front of the person and do Triangle Pose as well. This creates a double tunnel for someone else to crawl through.
  5. The game continues until all runners have been frozen, and then a new person becomes “It.”

Celebrate Mother’s Day With These Family Friendly Yoga Poses

“Mother’s hold their children’s hands for a short while,  but their hearts, forever…” –Unknown

Celebrate Mother’s Day with these Family Fun Yoga Ideas!

Back to Back Breathing:

Back to Back Breathing is a wonderful and relaxing way to connect with your children. It also builds mindfulness. Sit tall in a comfortable position with legs crossed. Slowly rest your back gently against your partner’s back. Encourage your child to try to notice your breath. Is it shallow or deep? Fast or slow? Can they feel your back move as they breathe? This is a really sweet partner exercise for any age and feels so comforting to lean against another person like that.

Family Trees:

Stand in a circle side by side and touch palms to help balance each other. Then take one foot and place it on our leg. Bring your branches (hands) up taller. Remember to switch legs. Notice how you are all stronger when you work together!

Legs Up the Wall:

Kids and adults both love this relaxing yoga pose! Scooch up close to a wall and lie flat on your back. Slowly raise your legs straight up against the wall which makes an L shape with your body. Keeping your legs together, flex your feet. Relax your arms to the side and keep your neck in a neutral and relaxed position. Close your eyes, and take a few moments and rest in this incredible restorative pose! This can also be done as Partner Legs Up the Wall Pose.

Toega: 

toega yoga game for kidsToega is the perfect yoga game to play with all different ages. What exactly is Toega? It is yoga for your feet! Kids love this simple exercise and it is good for them as well. All you need are some colored pom pom balls and bare feet! It is fun and easy to play. Find out how to play here.

How to Play the Listening Game with Children

How to Play the Listening Game with Children

Are you ready for a new and fun idea that will get kids to listen? The Listening Game is one of my favorite new mindfulness games to use in my kids yoga classes. This simple game works like magic in getting your student’s attention while helping them be quiet and mindful.

I have used this with kids ages 2-16 and it is amazing how it completely calms and focuses them.

This is also a good game to use as a teacher to transition from a loud large group activity to a more calming and mindful time.

For this game, the only thing you need is chime, bell, or a singing bowl. This is chime has been my favorite to use and is pretty inexpensive on Amazon.

This chime is also the perfect size for popping into my kids yoga bag to take to class or in my teacher bag to use at school.

What I Would Say to the Kids:
How many of you think you are really good at listening? Children raise hands

Great! We are going to see what great listeners we can be and play The Listening Game!

Sit up nice in tall in your seat with your hands resting in your lap. Now I am going to play a chime. I want you to listen for as long as you can. When you do not hear the chime anymore than raise your hand. Are you ready?

Play the chime once. Notice when the children raise their hands when they cannot hear the chime anymore. They can also open their eyes.

Oh, you are such great listeners AND you look so relaxed!

Have the children take two or three rounds of breath together and then play again. A note from experience,  remember to not overplay this game so it will not lose its effectiveness. 2-4 rounds is enough at one time.
