Daily Activity for Kids – Kids Yoga Activity
Introducing young children to yoga helps establish early healthy habits that can be carried into adulthood. Yoga can enhance a child’s strength, coordination and flexibility, while encouraging body awareness and self-esteem. It can help to relieve anxiety and stress and help to promote a sense of calm. This is a great activity to do before bed, before a nap, or in moments where a child may seem irritated.
Step 1: Find a quiet space in your home and put on some soft instrumental music or nature sounds. On a nice day, you can even find a spot outside.
Step 2: Gather a blanket or yoga mat for each participant so that they have their own space to do the activity.
Step 3: Try the 15 Easy Yoga poses for kids on the following website: https://www.momjunction.com/articles/easy-and-effective-yoga-poses-for-your-kids_00377906/
Step 4: Make sure you breathe slowly through each pose and enjoy the quiet time together with your child.
