Today, we would love to introduce you to our newest Kids Yoga Stories Ambassador, Angie Morton-Locke. She is the founder of Believe In and a yoga instructor from Canada. She currently offers yoga, wellness, and mindfulness classes to schools via video.
She shared a super-easy way to integrate yoga and breathing into your student’s day in a fun and engaging way…. with a small sprinkle of math thrown in for good measure. 😉
Fun Friday “Odd or Even” Yoga Dice Game
What You Need:
- 24 Yoga Poses Poster (free resource available here)
- List of breathing exercises you have sourced, or you can use our Breathing Exercises for Kids
- 2 Dice
How to Play:
Step #1 – Resources Ready
Have your resources printed off or viewable on a device.
Step #2 – Roll the Dice
One child rolls the dice.
The group can decide what the two dice add up to.
For example, if she/he rolled a 4 and a 3, then the number would be 7.
Step #3 – Determine if Even or Odd
Whether the sum is even or odd will determine your next steps.
For even numbers, you choose one yoga pose from the 24 Yoga Poster for the children to do.
For odd numbers, you choose one breathing exercise.
Step #4 – Move and Breathe
Do the yoga or mindfulness exercises and repeat.
As Angie shared, it’s a great way to introduce both yoga and mindfulness to children in a variety of ways during the same session.
