Patriotic Yoga

How did it become mid-May?  Minnesota has such long winters that it feels like you blink and practically miss Spring!  By Memorial Day I’m already in full summer mode.  Memorial Day is almost here!  Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving our country.  It’s one of several patriotic holidays that we observe in the United States.  Patriotic yoga is a fun activity to incorporate into learning about Memorial Day, President’s Day, Fourth of July (and all patriotic holidays)!

Patriotic themed yoga/movement ideas! I love that you can get FREE yoga cards as well! They would be perfect for Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July and more!

Whether  you are posing like a flag or Uncle Sam be sure to enjoy your yoga!  Modify the poses as needed.  Let the kids enjoy the yoga and be creative with their poses.
