Are you looking for something for your classroom, therapy, or home that has a ton of benefits and the kids will love at the same time? You have to check out these kids Christmas yoga pose ideas. Have the kids posing like a sleigh or doing ho-ho-ho breathing! Great for beginners to regular yogis!
Kids Christmas Yoga Pose Ideas
The Christmas themed yoga pose ideas are sure to be a hit with your kiddos! Many of the poses are traditional yoga poses with a Christmas spin. If you love these pose ideas you can get them in cards and printables with detailed descriptions and fun pictures in the Pink Oatmeal shop or on TpT. Have fun!
Candy Cane Pose
Sit tall with your back straight and your legs out in front of you. Place your hands at your side like you are holding on to the sleigh. Rock back and forth like you are riding on a flying sleigh!
Start by standing next to the wall. Move to a tall kneeling position. Try to bring your feet towards your bottom (use your hand on the wall for balance). Try to walk on your knees using the wall for balance. If this is difficult try walking in tall kneel.
Warrior Pose – Raise your arms up in front of you like you have antlers.
Christmas Tree Pose
Sit tall on your bottom with your legs crossed. Place your hands on stomach. Breathe in and feel your stomach rise. Breathe out and feel stomach go in. Repeat the in and out breathing and relax.
Mountain Pose – Move your wrists side to side like a flame of a candle.
Lay flat on your back. Raise your arms above your head while spreading your legs. Bring your arms back to your side while closing your legs. Repeat. * Think of making snow angels!*
Santa Dog Pose
Downward Dog Pose – Move your hips side to side like you are wagging your tail or shaking off snow.
Christmas Yoga Cards and Printables
Do you love the idea of Christmas Yoga, but want it ready made and easy to use at all times? I don’t blame you! I have 2 Versions of Christmas Yoga Cards and Printables available for you in the shop or Teachers Pay Teachers store Both of these sets consist of the same poses, but have a different presentation!
Christmas Kids Yoga Cards and Printables
This set of yoga cards consists of 11 Christmas Themed Yoga Poses. There are card sized (half sheets) and full sheet printables. This gives you the option to utilize the set however you like best!
This set consists of the same 11 poses as the kids set. The difference in this set is the presentation of pictures of objects instead of kids in the poses. I’ve found that some of my kids relate better to seeing a picture of a sleigh or elf instead of a picture of a yoga pose!
