Are you looking for toddler yoga ideas?
You’ve seen how much your toddler loves yoga poses and you’re keen for new ideas to keep them engaged in this ancient practice!
Yoga for toddlers is a great idea because it:
- Builds their strength and flexibility
- Increases their body awareness, balance, and coordination
- Provides them with emotional regulation tools
- Develops their language and social skills
I’ll never forget the days my daughter began acting out animals and things in nature when she was a toddler as a way to communicate before she could talk. At the zoo, she would reach up into Extended Mountain Pose in front of the giraffe and use her arms in Wide-Legged Standing Forward Bend when she saw an elephant. And all those times she would pop up into Downward-Facing Dog Pose were precious.
Yoga for toddlers just makes sense. Here are a collection of toddler yoga ideas to spark your imagination. The main thing is to have fun while moving with your little ones. Let them lead you on a fun yoga experience that encourages their creativity and imagination.
