I love the fall! If only winter didn’t follow… The start of fall also means the start of the school year around here. One of my activities to work on strength, range of motion, and body awareness with my kids is different yoga poses. A fall theme can easily be integrated into yoga poses making it even more fun.
Fall Themed Yoga Poses
Each card represents something associated with gardening. Whether you are posing like a seed or a butterfly be sure to enjoy your yoga! Modify the poses as needed. Let the kids enjoy the yoga and be creative with their poses.
Mountain Pose – Put your arms out to the side like a scarecrow!
Apple Basket Pose
Butterfly Pose – Creating a basket with your legs!
Bear Walks – On your hands and feet walk around like a bear!
Happy Baby Pose – Roll like a pumpkin!
Stand in mountain pose. Twist side to side or spin like a leaf falling through the sky!
Start on your knees resting your bottom on your heels. Raise up into tall kneeling with your hands on your thighs. Hold and breathe!
Long Sitting Pose –Twist side to side like you are raking (be sure to keep your back straight)!
Love the idea of fall themed yoga, but don’t have the time to get it organized? I have 2 different sets of fall yoga cards that you can choose from! They are perfect to carry with you if you travel, to have as a free play option, or for brain breaks. They are an excellent resource for therapists, teachers, parents, and special education teachers. Both sets of cards consist of the same poses. They just have a different presentation. This way you can choose which option works best for you or go with both!
The first set consists of cards and printables that have pictures of real kids in the poses. The cards have pictures of the kids with a description of the pose. The printables are full page pictures of the kids (in the same poses). This way you can utilize the pack in a variety of different ways! You can find them in my shop.
The second set consists of the same yoga poses but with fun pictures of clip art (for example leave pose would have a picture of a leaf). For some kiddos this is more fun! The cards and printables have the pictures with the descriptions. This way you can utilize the pack in a variety of different ways! You can find them in my shop.
