Yoga with little kids is meant to be fun and free flowing. I have many parents ask me how to do yoga with their kids and my advice is to just do it. Get on the mat with your kid(s) and play. If you want them to enjoy yoga and do it more often, then make it fun. There is no need to worry about form or doing it right. Kids love to play and yoga is like adults playing. In this class, we will do some basic poses and go with the flow. It starts out as just my 5 year old and I and then a few minutes in, my 2 year old decides to join. us. We had fun and I hope you and your family have fun doing yoga with us.
My son Matteo joins me once again for a short little kids yoga flow. We do a little core, some cat/cow, a few childs poses, a couple of twists and have lots of fun. You don't have to spend much time on the mat with your toddler to have a successful yoga session. Just be sure to keep it light and make it fun. This will encourage them to do it again with you and hopefully develop some tools that they can use as they get older. We end with a short savasana and brief meditation. Enjoy.
