Holiday Yoga Fun: The 12 Days of Yoga Game/Song

A Crowd Pleaser

Whether you are a parent, yoga teacher, or sibling, aunt, uncle, friend of a child, this classic yoga game is an all time favorite of children.

 

Inclusive Family Fun

Challenging enough to keep big kids interested, and sweet and fun enough for young children, it can be an inclusive activity for all ages and abilities. If someone can't do poses, they can sing. If they can't sing, they can try to do poses. If they'd prefer, they can show the cards. Everyone can participate in their own ay.

 

Pointers:

 

      1. Sing the 12-Days of Christmas song at the slow pace to allow for the transition from one pose to another.
      2. Practice each pose individually before you put them all together.
      3. Drink water after you play.
      4. Praise the effort not the perfection of the poses or order of poses. All kids have different strengths.

Sing and Play!

Everyone can sing along to the word of this classic song. Even in my non-Christian household, we love this activity, song, and sequence.

 

 

Make breathing fun!

Included in this lesson plan are several mindfulness and breathing activities!

 

Tons of poses!

From frog to airplane to locust to tree, enjoy this challenging yoga sequence!

Includes cow, tree, eagle, airplane, crescent lung, frog squat, chair pose, goddess pose, cat, and cow, dancer pose, and warrior 2.

 

Let us know how you like this family and school favorite lesson plan and activity pack! Includes 12 pose cards, song lyrics with poses, breathing activities and meditations, and coloring pages!
