Baby Animals Yoga for Animal Lovers!

Baby animals are so incredibly cute, right! We just recently bought a digital photo frame, and looking back over the years, there is one thing in common with the photos of my daughter. She is often holding baby animals—whether it’s a piglet, chick, kitten, or puppy. She loves baby animals—and she’s not alone!

If you’re looking for a fun, engaging yoga theme for your animal-loving children, why not try Baby Animals Yoga. You will find five baby animal yoga poses below, or if you’re looking for more poses, check out our Baby Animal Yoga Cards for Kids.

To extend the yoga lesson, you could:

  • read a few baby animal books, 
  • create baby animal art projects, 
  • have a discussion on which baby animals they love the most, 
  • bring in their favorite baby animal stuffie,
  • or match baby animal names with the adult animal names.
