Animal Yoga Ideas for Kids

Yoga poses were invented thousands of years ago in India. It’s said that a group of people invented yoga postures by mimicking their natural environment. And that’s precisely why so many yoga postures are modeled after animals.

Children generally love animals, so it only makes sense to introduce children to this ancient wisdom through something they love, making their learning relevant and meaningful. Below, you will find various animal yoga pose sequences inspired by animals around the world.
