Zoo Yoga

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child what they know about yoga.
  2. Say, "Yoga is when we connect our mind, body, and breath. In doing this, we can feel more calm. Today we will focus on yoga animal poses."
  3. Play the  "Zoo Zen: A Yoga Story for Kids" video. Pause it to move into the yoga poses that are shown throughout the video.
  4. Ask your child what they noticed, and which poses they remember from the story.
  5. Invite them to come up with a few of their own animal yoga poses. Tell them that they will teach these yoga poses to someone else afterwards.
  6. After your child has created their own animal yoga poses, have them teach the poses to you or someone else.
  7. Now, onto the really fun part of this activity! Review the Yoga Animal Book worksheet with your child, and together, create a book of animal yoga poses.
  8. Have your family practice one of the poses each day before or after a meal.
