I don’t know about you, but as cliche as it sounds I always find myself at the start of a new year with a resolution. This year my resolution is to start exercising again. With the new baby and a toddler I’ve found that my exercising just isn’t happening. One of my favorite ways to exercise is with yoga. I’m not flexible and my poses don’t always look right, but I still enjoy it! I also love to use yoga as a fun way to exercise with my students when I’m at work and my toddler is now taking out my yoga mat all the time talking about how he is going to do yoga! I’ve put together some kids yoga resources that I use. I’ve started to create many myself as well to share!

I tend to be one that likes to do yoga that is not screen based. Our world is screen dominant and this doesn’t seem to be changing. For this reason, I prefer yoga off the screen. That being said, any way that you can implement physical activity and yoga is good.
YouTube – There are several different kid yoga videos on YouTube that I’m looking forward to trying out! I love having physical objects when I work with the kids, but if in a pinch I think this is a great resource.
GoNoodle – GoNoodle has a ton of different brain break and yoga videos to use. GoNoodle can be used in the classroom or at home.
Themed Yoga Ideas
You have hit the jackpot of yoga themes here! I’ve found that incorporating yoga with different themes has been really fun. There are over 30 different yoga themes for kids in this resource on the Pink Oatmeal website. I’ve shared in several different blog posts all the different poses that can be used to go with each theme. I’ve also created corresponding cards to go with each theme. Kids LOVE the themes. They go really well with different units or are a ton of fun on their own. I’ll often times let the kids pick their theme!
Let’s face it, technology is here to stay! So let’s try adding a little physical activity into that technology. Interactive yoga does just that! It’s a great way to combine technology time with physical activity, plus it’s fun and easy! Grab this today in the shop !
