Halloween Colors Yoga

When lots of people think of Halloween, they think of carving pumpkins, dressing up in costumes, and eating candy.

Why not try something different for Halloween this year?  Halloween colors yoga poses for kids!

Inspired by Mary McKenna Siddal’s brand-new book release, Shivery Shades of Halloween: A Spooky Book of Colors, here’s a way to celebrate Halloween by learning, moving, and having fun.

Shivery Shades of Halloween is a silly and colorful book, brought to life with engaging rhyming text that’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. My three-year-old daughter was captivated by the poetic language and vivid illustrations.

As well as focusing on the various colors in this Halloween book, you could add movement to your reading experience with these five yoga poses for kids.

Halloween Colors Yoga Poses for Kids

Five yoga poses inspired by Shivery Shades of Halloween:

1. Pretend to be Gray Gargoyle.

Practice Hero Pose: From a kneeling position, come back to rest your bottom on your heels and place your hands on your knees. Pretend to be a gargoyle guarding the front doorstep.

2. Pretend to be Yellow Candle.

Practice Half Shoulder Stand: Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor, arms resting alongside your body, and chin tucked in. On an inhale, push your palms down and lift your legs straight up, making an L shape with your body. Stay in this position or bend your elbows and place your palms on your lower back for a half shoulder stand. Pretend your feet are the flickering flames and your legs are the candlesticks.
