Spring is in full swing. The birds are chirping, plants are blooming, the air is warmer, and the days are longer. At my house this means that gardening is beginning. My thumb isn’t green, more yellow really, but I try. This year I plan to plant lettuce, peppers, green beans, tomatoes, and flowers. Gardening is also an excellent theme to incorporate into kids yoga. Garden yoga for kids is great not only for the spring, but can be utilized year round.

Walk The Fence
Tandem standing – do it on both sides. Or work on walking heel to toe across the room.
Lay flat on your back with your legs squeezed together. Point your toes. Prop yourself on your elbows keeping your hands on the floor. Lift your belly and chest off the ground. Let your head rest back (it can gently touch the floor). Hold and breathe.
Chair Pose – Move to standing and even jump if you’d like. Imagine being a sprout coming out of the ground!
Forward Fold – Move your arms like water flowing out of a watering can.
Lay flat on your tummy. Place your hands under your shoulders. Lift your chest off the floor. Look up. Hold.
Start seated criss-cross on the floor. Place your hands in front of your chest with the palms pressed together. Breathe in and raise your hands over your head and wiggle your fingers like rain. Breathe out, clap your hands together like thunder. Repeat with each breath.
Chair Pose – Hold and breathe!
Airplane Pose – Think of yourself as a ladybug flying through the air!
