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 (and all patriotic holidays)!
Patriotic Yoga Pose Ideas
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.
Chair Pose – Wave the flag side to side while in this pose!
Airplane Pose – Move your arms up and down like an eagle!
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. Breathe out, clap your hands together and bring them back to in front of your chest. Repeat with each breath.
