Help your little ones tap into their summer flow thanks to Kidsyogastories and their full guide to summer yoga and meditation!
Triangle Pose – Sailboat Pose
Start in Mountain Pose. Then step one foot to the side and face it slightly outward. Extend your arms out, parallel to the ground.
Then bend at the waist, lifting one arm into the air and bringing the other down your shin.
Have your little one pretend to be a sailboat floating along the water.
Plank Pose – Surfboard Pose
From the Triangle pose, slide your hand that was on your shin on the ground in front of you as you lower your other arm to place both hands on the ground in front of you.
Make sure your hands are placed as though you are about to do a push-up. Step or jump both feet back so that you are poised to do a push up. Rise up on your toes and make sure to keep your palms and back flat.
Have your little ones pretend to be a surfboard swaying on the surface of the ocean.
Boat Pose – Boat on the Water Pose
From the Plank pose, step your feet forward and sit on your bottom. Lift your legs to a 45 or 60-degree angel. Keep your arms parallel to the ground. Make sure your legs, arms, and back are all straight!
This pose may be a little harder to hold but don’t give up and make sure to breathe!
Once you’re little ones are steady in this position, rock back and forth like a boat on the water!
