It’s finally the time of the year when we can really get out of the house. People are out and about back on the trails and visiting state parks. Even though I’m from Minnesota, I’m not much of a winter person. I don’t love the cold, but I love being outside. As soon as the temperatures are nice we are outside all the time. We are lucky to live near many local and state parks that allow us to get out and explore the woods. The woods is the perfect place to find animals and plants that can be performed as woodland yoga poses.
Woodland yoga poses are the perfect addition to any woodland themed unit, brain break, or therapy session. These yoga poses can be easily integrated into instructional time as well. Your kids will love this movement and so will you. Get woodland yoga cards already created for you and get started using them today!
Downward Dog Pose or walk on your feet and hands like a bear.
