“See you in Africa on a camel,” was what I wrote in my high school graduation book. I’ve wanted to visit Africa my whole life, and I desperately hope to one day take my husband and daughter on an African safari.
In the meantime, I have to live vicariously through my friends who have gone on safaris. I sent out a message on Facebook, asking friends for African animal photos, and made this little video for you with the African animal yoga poses you’ll find below.
I also wrote our 123 African Safari (coming soon) yoga book a couple of years ago when my daughter was a preschooler, so that we could talk and learn about this special place together through movement.
If you’re like me and have always dreamed of going on an African adventure or if you’re teaching Africa as part of your curriculum, why not try out these safari animals yoga poses to learn through fun and movement!
