Welcome to our chair yoga poses series! This month’s theme feature woodland forest animals!
These five woodland forest animals-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 forest with Mia’s Mountain Hike. Take a hike through the forest and imagine all the things you’ll see there. Engage the children’s five senses as they bring the forest to life with their minds and bodies.
Clear the space, grab a chair, practice barefoot, and unleash your imagination!
