Today we are talking transportation yoga! What little boy (or girl) doesn’t love yoga that that is all about cars and trucks! There is just something about things that “go”. Let’s talk about how we can combine transportation and yoga for some fun gross motor and sensory!
Bicycle – Bicycle Pose. Get those legs pedaling fast and slow!
Boat- Boat Pose. Rock back and forth like a boat in the water!
Helicopter – Start in mountain pose, raise your arms over your head, spin!
Rocket – Tree pose. With your hands over your head pretend you are blasting off like a rocket.
Skateboard – Warrior 2 pose. Don’t wobble!
Hot Air Balloon – Hot Air Balloon Breathing. Keep your hands on your stomach. Breathe in and make your stomach into a balloon. Breathe out! Repeat.
Car – Sit in long sitting with your spine straight and legs in front of you. Pretend that you are holding a steering wheel in front of you and drive!
Scooter – Dancer’s Pose. Don’t lose your balance and fall off your scooter.
Train – Partner chair pose. While holding hands move them back and forth like the wheels on the train.
Ship – Partner Boat Pose. Larger then your regular boat!
Airplane– Airplane pose. Do on both sides!
Dump Truck – Star Pose. Tip to your side like you are a dump truck. Do it on both sides!
If cars, trucks, and planes are a hit at your home, classroom or therapy, you can easily get your own set of transportation yoga cards. The cards give you easy access to transportation 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. They are an excellent resource for therapists and special education teachers as well. Pink Oatmeal has two versions available. Both sets of yoga cards are the same poses with a different presentation! Pick which set works for you or get both!
The cards can be found at my shop on the blog or at my Teacher Pay Teacher Store. Included is a full set of cards with a full description of how to do each pose. It also includes full sheet pictures and full sheet descriptions if you prefer to use it for a bulletin board or display.
These yoga cards and printables are the same poses, but they have real kids int he poses! The yoga cards include the picture and description while the printables are full sheet pictures of the kids in the poses. Grab them at the shop or at TpT!
