Summer Yoga Poses: Crab Pose

Welcome back to our 'Summer at the Beach' Blog Series. We’re in Week 3 of 6! We delight in keeping your kids practicing yoga and mindfulness all Summer long. 


Here is a great way to continue your summer yoga poses with your kids! Let’s dig into the fun  Crab yoga pose.  Crab pose stretches and opens up the chest, and tones the lower back. It builds strength in the arms, legs, and core. 

Pose: Crab
Ages: Appropriate for all ages
Mantra: I am protected.

 

Crab Yoga Poses for Kids

How to do Crab Pose

  1. Sit on your bottom with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Place your hands behind your hips on the ground.
  3. Press your hands and feet down as you lift your hips up high.
  4. Lengthen your belly, chest, and back of the neck. Think of making the front body into a straight line.
  5. Release your bottom down.

Crab Walk or Race Game

We’re talking about embracing the fun that only crabs can bring! Try Crab Walks! And if the environment is right, have a Crab Race with your friends! Older kids can walk sideways, crab-style!

Crabbiness

Everyone is cranky or grouchy at times. Talk to your Littles about how to kick a bad mood. Depending on age, you may discuss the first signs of being crabby. How can they help a friend turn a bad mood into a better mood! One of our favorite go-to conversations for kids ages 5+ is that crabbiness is sometimes as simple as a choice you get to make. You can choose a good mood or a bad one. Hint: Good moods tend to have more fun!
