This week we are talking farm yoga and movements. Last week I shared about zoo themed yoga. The farm is another awesome place for kids to visit and explore. My son is particularly fond of the farm. He’s pretty darn good at all the farm animal sounds! Yoga can easily be incorporated into a farm theme along with other farm themed sensory and motor play. Farm yoga is fun to use from toddlers through elementary school.
Each pose represents something associated with the farm. Whether you are posing like a pig or a cow be sure to enjoy your yoga! Modify the poses as needed. Let the kids enjoy the yoga and be creative with their poses. Save yourself time and effort and get ready made farm themed yoga cards and printables in the shop.
Cat pose and works perfect with the cow pose.
Cow Pose and works perfect with the cat pose.
Happy Baby Pose – Rock back and forth like a pig rolling in the mud!
Downward dog pose along with some barking can make this pose fun.
Chair Pose – Move to chair pose hold and back to stand and repeat. Move up and down like a hopping bunny at a controlled pace.
Gallop in all directions – forward, in circles, fast, and slow.
Jumping Sheep – The perfect way to incorporate all kinds of jumping – single foot, big leaps, and side to side.
Donkey Kicks – On your hands and knees do donkey kicks, take turns kicking legs on each side.
Duck Walk– Walk with your knees together or hold a ball between your knees and walk. You will find yourself waddling like a duck!
Chick Pose (Flapping Wings) – Place your hands up near your arm pits and flap your arms like wings. Make sure you squeeze your shoulder blades together with each flap.
Goat Climbing – Work on crossing the mid line as you climb by lifting your right leg at the same time as your left arm and the reverse. Climb fast and climb slow.
