Try a trip to the beach through beach yoga poses for kids!
Moving and playing together is great in any weather, but summer is especially enjoyable for beach yoga poses for kids. The sequence below will lead your family on a beach-inspired journey in your living room, backyard, or local park. Kids yoga is all about having fun, being imaginative, and engaging through movement.
Get out beach props like a beach umbrella, a beach chair, sunhats, or a bucket and spade. Look for beach-related books, toys, or photos. Put on your favorite beach music or the sound of ocean waves or animals. Make fun fruity drinks with umbrella straws. Cater to each of your senses.
Use your imagination! Once your “beach” is set up, jump in and act out what you find along the shoreline with your children. Discuss the “journey” with your children as you move together. What do they imagine seeing, hearing, feeling, and smelling.
The eight poses are listed in a specific sequence to invite flow from one pose to the next. Feel free to add or take out any of the poses to suit the needs and interests of your child. Being creative is always encouraged. Wear your comfortable beach clothing and practice barefoot. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t tried yoga before, just give it a go. The focus is on having fun, but please be safe.
