Get The Wiggles Out With These Kids' Yoga Classes
Yoga is a life-long practice that all ages can enjoy and benefit from, so start them YOUNG!
While we love the Winter and the outdoor fun that comes with it, sometimes you just want to stay indoors out of the cold. We can relate.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite yoga practices for kids to experience during for beneficial down time at home!
Stream these videos from your home at any time, or research the instructor's schedule if you would prefer to follow along live.
Find a variety of yoga activities here that your child can do on their own or with you! The membership is ”pay what you can” via Venmo, and the series goes on until March 31st. Jana also has a Story Time Yoga on the first Tuesday of every month that kids will love.
Cosmic Kids Yoga is an interactive series on Youtube that has new videos every week that are themed adventures and mindfulness in lessons. Cosmic Kids videos are focused on animations and stories to keep kids engaged. Each video is about 30-45 minutes long, so they are likely to keep your child's attention the entire time!
This video is structured like a real yoga class with breathing, setting an intention, and following along. This video is engaging and playful, but probably best for older kids who don’t have to rely on cartoonish animations to keep their attention for the full 30 minutes.
This 20-minute yoga class is great for pre-school ages, especially because the video shows the instructor teaching to a room of kids, so it is easier for them to follow along.
If you have an Amazon Prime account, you can access this 20-minute yoga class for kids that centers around teaching about animals and the rain forest. This class is faster-paced and should keep even younger kids engaged.
PoserKids has an entire season of episodes on Amazon Prime, and each video centers around a lesson or real-world scenario that kids may have to deal with. One focuses on going to the dentist or dealing with bullies. This series teaches kids to be mindful in everyday situations and teaches yoga poses along the way. Episodes are about 15 to 20 minutes long each.
If your child doesn’t tend to commit to full yoga programs, start their journey off slowly by teaching them this amazing song. For moments of frustration, sadness, anger - really any emotion - this song (and the associated motions) will set them on the fast track to a smile and a sense of peace in any situation. Here’s a demonstration by sweet little Emma!
