How many kids do you know that say they want to visit space? I’m sure there are a few out there! Space can be a really fun unit to learn about. As a teacher, adding yoga to your space unit adds a fun learning component with the benefit of movement to your lesson. Maybe you are a parent or therapist and have a kid that loves space and you want to find fun ways to encourage them to move. Space yoga may be just what you are looking for!
Space Yoga Pose Ideas
Airplane Pose – Think of a meteor flying through space
Chair Pose – Move to standing and add a jump at the end like a rocket blasting off!
Cobra Pose – Look up like you are looking through a telescope into space!
Satellite (Partner Pose)
Partner Boat Pose – Gently rock back and forth like you are orbiting the earth.
Tree Pose – Raise your arms over your head like a shuttle blasting off!
Resting Pose – Look up at the stars over head.
Stand tall. Keep legs hip width apart. Reach your arms out to the side. Bring your fingers together above your head forming a circle (the world) with your arms. Breathe in and out!
Space Yoga Cards and Printables
Do you love the idea of Space Yoga, but want it accessible, ready made and easy to use at all times? I don’t blame you! The news gets even better as there are two different sets to choose from! Both sets have the same poses, but the presentation is different!
Clip Art Set – All of the above poses are included with a fun everyday graphic (not kids in the pose) in the set of cards. There is also a cover card included for an easy way to keep your yoga cards organized! You can see full previews of the resource in the shops.
REAL KIDS SET – This set consists of REAL KIDS in the space themed yoga poses! These are perfect for those who like to see the actual pictures of real kids working on the poses!
