Welcome back to our chair yoga ideas for kids series! This month’s theme includes jungle yoga poses!
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 “the jungle.” These five jungle-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 visit to the jungle with Sophia’s Jungle Adventure, a yoga book inspired by the Costa Rican jungle. Imagine all the things you’ll see and do in the jungle. Engage the children’s five senses as they bring the jungle to life with their minds and bodies.
Clear the space, grab a chair, practice barefoot, and unleash your imagination!

Jungle Yoga Book for Kids: Sophia’s Jungle Adventure
Join Sophia on her jungle adventure! Fly like a toucan, slither like a snake, and flutter like a butterfly as you act out this journey through a Costa Rican jungle. What else might you see?
Kids Yoga Stories introduce you to engaging characters who will get your child laughing, moving, and creating. Reading is good for the mind AND body! The story links several yoga poses in a specific sequence to create a coherent and meaningful story.
This book for ages 3 to 7 is more than a storybook, but it’s also a unique experience for children.
Sophia’s Jungle Adventure is also available in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Italian, Russian, and German.
Snehal says, “I really love this book. I am a yoga teacher, and I use books all the time in my classes. Sophia’s Jungle Adventure is great because it has a great story, so colorful that it immediately attracts the attention of a child. It has a great eco-friendly theme! Sophia and her friends are in an Environment Club at school.”
