Yoga Easter Egg Hunt

Spring is in the air and as Nature starts to show signs of new life, it is the perfect time for children to discover their connection to the natural world through yoga! Yoga allows kids to appreciate how things grow and the beauty all around them.
Instead of tossing those Easter baskets aside, why not use them to explore some fun Nature yoga and breathing exercises?  You can recycle those plastic Easter Eggs and plan a yoga egg hunt indoors or outdoors that your kids will love! It makes a great rainy day activity too!

In honor of the Easter Bunny, start with a BUNNY BREATH.  
Wriggle your nose like a bunny, and start taking quick, short breaths out through your nose.
Are you hungry?  Let’s sniff around for some carrots!
Tell your child you will be going on an YOGA EASTER EGG HUNT!
Take turns opening the eggs and doing the yoga poses or movements of the animals or objects on the stickers or printed clipart.

 

Some of the Poses you can do are:
Easter Bunny-Hop like a Bunny and do Rabbit Pose.
Butterfly-Bring soles of your feet together and put your hands on shoulders, as you flutter your ‘wings’-arms and legs.
Bee-Bumblebee Breath- take a deep breath in and breathe out making a BUZZZZZZZZING sound)
Bird-Stretch out your arms and flap your ‘wings” as you fly around.
Frog-Squat in Frog Pose
Egg and Chick- Come into Child’s Pose for Egg and pretend you are a little CHICK coming out of your egg.
Turtle-Sit with legs bent and arms tucked under legs, hiding your head in your turtle shell and then peek your head out.
