Welcome back to our chair yoga poses series! This month’s theme is island yoga!
Integrating movement into the students’ learning experiences is so important, and I’m hoping this year-long series will help to bring yoga into your life in a fun, creative, and easy way. Each month, this series will feature a different theme that includes five chair yoga poses and a recommended yoga book for kids. This month’s theme is “tropical island.” These five island-themed yoga poses could be done:
- during a transition time in the classroom
- during a subject change in your homeschool classroom
- at home when you’re stuck indoors
- when you would like to practice yoga in a small space
Begin your pretend island trip with Hello, Bali, a yoga book based on a trip to the island of Bali. Imagine all the things you’ll see and do while visiting a tropical island. Engage the children’s five senses as they bring the island to life through their minds and bodies.
Clear the space, grab a chair, practice barefoot, and unleash your imagination!
