Summer Yoga Ideas for Kids (+ Printable Poster)

As my daughter’s school year comes to a close, I find myself thinking of ways to integrate yoga into our summer days together.

Embracing all the facets of the yoga philosophy is important to me: including sitting silently, breathing together, teaching my daughter how to be a kind and happy person, doing community service projects, and practicing yoga poses for kids.

I aim to create yoga as a lifestyle for our family.
