Yoga and Mindfulness for children and Teens.
Happy valentines day!
As a single mum, during a pandemic with no chance of lining up dates why not make the day a celebration of all the love we have at home. There is no better way to do this than spending quality time together, having fun! This is a great game because its one that you can play anytime. Love hearts are not just for valentines!
All you will need is some red card cut into love hearts (and in fairness you could use any colour) and a pen.
On each love heart, write down a different yoga pose.

Now you are ready to play!
Put on your kids favourite music. Place the hearts on the ground with space between them. When the music is playing, everyone dances and moves around the room. When the music stops, everyone must stand on a heart. Stand statue still for three breaths. Together you look at what you are each standing on and complete the action. Yoga poses can be held until the music plays again.
To make it more interesting you could remove the hearts as you go on, maybe at random or ones that have been played. you decide! Have fun!
Let me know if you'll be trying this at home! This is such a fun way to get the family doing yoga together!
