Halloween Yoga

It’s been a while since my last post, I come back now as a ghost.

Just in time for Halloween, in different costumes you have seen.

For a time I pondered why, I drew poses for kids to try.

Julia gave me the answer one day, yoga is just a great way to play.

Breathing, moving, and, having fun, It feels better than going for a run.

It can be done by any child, to center and calm the side that’s wild.

Differently abled, short or tall, we all win in yoga, big and small.

Halloween Yoga: A Cartoon Yoga Sequence

This is the first fullmoonyoga.org cartoon yoga sequence, Halloween Yoga. We go through various possible Halloween costumes, yoga style, using imagination, breath and movement. In this fun, 15 minute sequence, we work on flexibility, coordination and relaxation. We go from grunting gorillas to howling dogs, and, moaning zombies, we move into different Halloween yoga costumes, finishing relaxed, as balls and chains, corpse’s, and, hero’s.

Be safe, breathe and have fun. Thank You for watching!

CatIt’s Halloween Yoga!!

This moon there will be many tricks, and, the treat is the great feeling you leave with once you are done this halloween themed kids yoga sequence. For the uninterrupted slide show, please visit the “color” tab. We will be trying on all the different yoga costumes, parading the streets as a zombies, and flying like bats to a graveyard where we will finish as corpse’s! Make space, be safe, and, breathe.

First, start off in hairy gorilla costumes, breathing, Have a seat with your kids and take a moment to say hello, see how everyone is feeling, and, center. Once you have chimed in, ask them  to bring the feet into criss cross, or, soles together, and, take hold of the ankles. You are a pack of hairy gorillas, breathing in, making a grunting sound, and, bringing the chest up and forward, rolling the shoulders back. On the out breath, the opposite movement. Releasing the breath through a long neck, and, hiding the chest behind shoulders rolled forward. Repeating this movement and breathe mindfully until hips are loose, everyone is energized, you can also wave the arms in the air, tap the chest with hands, and, a screech, for added gorilla fun. Gorilla

After some quality time breathing in gorilla suits, start prowling the streets as cats and cows. Ask the children to come to hands and knees (& lower legs) for this great torso and spine loosening mini sequence. Cat and cow are also great for breathing, moving and making noise, getting kids interested in the sequence. Set the scene, you are on your hands and knees,  as cats and cows, looking for treats!  Continue reading
