Ladybugs, spiders, and worms make for a fun learning experience for kids. Do you know what can make it even more fun and change things up from the same old, same old? How about trying to incorporate yoga into your lesson. The great thing is you are incorporating movement into learning! Insects, bugs, and creepy crawlers can make yoga fun!
Insects, Bugs, and Creepy Crawlers Themed Yoga Pose Ideas
Start in tall kneeling. Reach out to the side with both arms. Lean side to side like a bee flying. Add BZZZZ if you would like!
Start standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Lower down into a squat position and hold. Return to standing position or jump! Repeat.
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.
Lay down on your tummy. Place your hands under your shoulders. Lift up one leg into the air. Use your opposite foot to try to get your leg even higher by placing it on the thigh of your leg that is in the air. Repeat on the opposite side.
Sit on your bottom with your legs crossed in front of you. Make sure your spine is long and you are sitting tall. Move your arms to the side like a spider.
Start out on your hands and knees. Reach your right arm in front of you. Reach your left leg behind you. Hold. Repeat on the opposite side. Continue repeating side to side.
