5 Beach Poses Using a Chair (Printable Poster)

Welcome back to our chair yoga poses series! This month’s theme includes beach poses!

Integrating movement into the students’ learning experiences is so important, and I’m hoping this year-long series will help to bring yoga into your life in a fun, creative, and easy way. Each month, this series will feature a different theme that includes five chair yoga poses and a recommended yoga book for kids. This month’s theme is “the beach.”

Begin your pretend visit to the beach with Luke’s Beach Day. Take a trip to an East Coast Australian beach and imagine all the things you’ll see there. Shop Yoga Books for Kids | Kids Yoga StoriesEngage the children’s five senses as they bring the beach to life with their minds and bodies.

Clear the space, grab a chair, practice barefoot, and unleash your imagination!
