Cat Pose – Arch your back like this giant cat!
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.
Lion Pose – Add a ROARR!
Start with feet hip width apart. Move down into a squat position. In this position move side to side. Add Monkey noises if you’d like.
Stand tall with your arms at your sides. Bend forward at your hips. Let your hands hang in front of you, touching the floor if you can. Hold the pose and breathe or if you feel like it, let your arms swing.
Cobra Pose – Add a hiss like a snake.
Start on your hands and knees. Reach one hand up to the sky as high as you can reach and hold for a few seconds. Switch sides and reach your opposite hand up to the sky and hold a few seconds. Repeat.
Sit tall with your legs straight in front of you. Make sure your spine is nice and straight. Lift your arms so that you can mimic driving the steering wheel of the jeep. Look for jungle animals!
Stand tall. Keep legs hip width apart. Place your palms together in front of your body and slowly raise them above your head. Bend forward at the hip. Hold and breathe!
Sit on the floor with your legs spread out to the side in front of you. Stretch your arms above your head. Move your arms to different positions on the compass. Talk about different directions and move your arms into that position!
