We’ve been running a sort of unofficial Active Week this week and when we think of some of our favorite ideas for getting active with kids, we can’t help but think about Tiny Yoga! We ran this post years first ago, but our kids still talk about the sun and we’ve carried on doing yoga with them by video ever since!
(The boys are wearing the new line from Mini X Style throughout – SO cute right?!)
So today we had to revisit! Now that they’re bigger and more coordinated it was even bigger of a hit! Here’s how you’ll do it:Start out the kiddos with paper plates and yellow, orange, red, paint. They get to create their own “sun” which will help you guide them through the poses.
Once dry, you can lead them through the poses by telling them where their sun is going to shine. Through arm and shoulder stretches – Raise the sun to the top of the sky!
A little downward dog:Once they’re all stretched out they can put the sun to bed for some trickier poses!

And our favorite mats!
Manduka is the top rated for several years in a row! The Pro is great if you like a thicker mat, the ProLite for a thinner version. The best budget-friendly mats have been haied from Gaiam! We love Lululemon’s too!
