Kids in Motion - Animal Yoga


Don't you feel great when you find an activity that is both good for your body and for your mind? Yoga has been around for thousands of years and has been used successfully for just those purposes. The asanas, or physical poses, build strength and flexibility, while the pranayamas, or breathing exercises, calm the body and refresh the mind. Take some time to share the benefits of yoga with your children, encouraging the development of balance, coordination, control, and calm. The poses in our Yoga Matching Cards focus on familiar animals in nature. When you are done practicing the poses, you can relax while you play the matching game with your child. Please join us as we explore these yoga poses this week at the museum, or download the Yoga Matching Cards and try them at home!

The poses included focus on familiar animals in nature. If you plan this activity for outside, perhaps some of those animals will join you! When you are done practicing the poses, you can relax while you play the matching game with your child.
