Animals are a wonderful way to introduce toddlers and babies to yoga. Children have a natural curiosity to the look, feel, and sounds of the animal kingdom, and children’s first books and toys often include bears, foxes, giraffes, and elephants. Children simply love animals, so what better way to begin your child’s yoga adventure than to practice animal yoga poses?
Animal yoga poses for toddlers can be fun and simple, and they promote a connection between you and your little one. Don’t forget to include your favorite animal sounds, associated animal toys if you have them, and any books to make the experience more enriching.
The most important thing is to have fun. Use your imagination and watch your child’s imagination grow, as well.
