Spooky Yoga

With Halloween last night it’s always fun to get in the spooky spirit and be a little creative when doing kids yoga.  On Friday during my kids classes I asked everyone to come up with a yoga posture that could be a Halloween pose.   Of course childrens creativity is always flowing and the response and fun we had was incredible.  Some children came up with postures that were brand new. For example little A wanted to be a jumping witch, so we hoped on one foot as we challenged our balance and stability.  Some children used yoga postures they were familiar with and put a new name to them. For savasana (corpse pose, or as the preschoolers call it “sleeping star”) K decided that we would spread our legs a little farther apart, reach our arms above head placing the hands together, and ta da……we are broomsticks!  Try it out with your kids…….maybe they will then clean your floors for you 😉

You could be a spooky black yoga cat by coming onto your hands and knees then arching your back as you look towards your belly button or knees. Meoowww!

Another creative posture I really liked was a pumpkin.  Laying down on your back hug your knees into your chest.  Wrap your arms around the outside of your legs and place your hands together in prayer pose on the top of your shins (this is the stem of your pumpkin).

Here is my little Yoda…..we are still trying to come up with an appropriate yoga posture!
