Space Yoga Pose Ideas

How many kids do you know that say they want to visit space?  I’m sure there are a few out there!  Space can be a really fun unit to learn about.  As a teacher, adding yoga to your space unit adds a fun learning component with the benefit of movement to your lesson.  Maybe you are a parent or therapist and have a kid that loves space and you want to find fun ways to encourage them to move.  Space yoga may be just what you are looking for!
