Are you looking for ways to share your passion for yoga with your kids? Yoga is a wonderful way to help kids stay active and learn mindfulness, and it’s something that can be incorporated into their daily routine.
The benefits of yoga for kids can be far-reaching. It helps to improve strength and flexibility, while also relieving stress and anxiety.
It can also be a great way to introduce mindfulness and relaxation into their lives, and help to build a healthier lifestyle.
So how can you help your kids to get the most out of their yoga practice? Here are a few tips:
Keep it Fun: Using props and movements that your kids enjoy can help to keep them engaged in their practice. Try using colorful mats and fun music to make it more enjoyable.
I wrote “My Daddy is a Pretzel” especially for parents and kids to read together, to introduce yoga in a way kids can understand and appreciate. You can pick it up on Amazon, it’s a great way to get started on this journey together!
Focus on the Breath: Teaching your kids how to control their breathing is one of the most important elements of yoga. Help them to focus on their breath and teach them how to take deep, calming breaths.

Make it a part of their routine: Help your kids to make yoga a part of their regular routine. Try to do it at the same time each day, so that it becomes a habit.
Learn New Poses: Work with your kids to learn new poses and stretches. There are lots of great resources online that can help you to find new poses and movements.
You can even use these cards for kids that have colorful illustrations of different poses. The cards are fun, they go well with the book I mentioned above, and you can use them to play games together that both teach poses and encourage play… a great way to unlock joy and a lifelong love of yoga.
Challenge Them: Challenge your kids to stay focused and work on their mindfulness. Show them how to stay in the moment and be aware of their bodies.
By following these tips, you can help your kids to make the most out of their yoga practice. Yoga is a great way to help your kids stay active, learn mindfulness, and develop healthy habits.
So why not make it something you do together!
