This week we are talking ocean themed yoga and movements. In the past couple of weeks I’ve shared about zoo themed yoga and farm yoga and movements. The ocean is another great place to learn and play. Yoga can easily be incorporated into a sea or ocean theme along with other sea themed motor play and learning. Ocean themed yoga is perfect for toddlers through elementary school-aged children.
Ocean Themed Yoga
Each pose represents something associated with sea or ocean. Whether you are posing like a whale or a puffer fish be sure to enjoy your yoga! Modify the poses as needed. Let the kids enjoy the yoga and be creative with their poses. If you really love this idea be sure to stop by the shop to get your ready made set of cards and printables for your own use!
Deep Breathing – Put your hands on your stomach and fill it up with air (like a puffer fish) blow out all your air and repeat.
Dolphin Pose – Make dolphin noises!
Lotus Pose – Move your arms at your side like an octopus!
Tall Kneeling reaching above your head.
Fish Pose – Move your face to make a fish face!
Forward Bend – Let your arms swing side to side like a jelly fish.

Sea Themed Yoga Cards
If you want to bring the sea or ocean to your home, classroom or therapy you can easily get your own set of cards. The cards give you easy access to ocean yoga anytime of the day. They are perfect to carry with you if you travel, to have as a free play option, or for brain breaks. Pink Oatmeal two options available for you. The poses are the same but the presentation is different. You can choose what set would be best for your individual setting. Ocean Yoga Everyday Objects has fun pictures included with descriptions of the poses. The pictures are everyday objects and not people in the poses. Ocean Yoga Kids version has pictures of kids in the poses.
