Yoga Poses for Kids: Dancing Warriors Flow

Move and dance through this strong Dancing Warriors Flow.

Dancing Warrior Kids Yoga Sequence

This flow sequence is perfect to energize and promote inner-strength for yogis big and small. Before starting the flow, a great way to introduce this sequence is to ask children, “what makes you a warrior?” Talk about things that make you feel powerful. Explain that power doesn’t necessarily need to be physical strength, but it can also be inner-strength too–like standing up for your friends or being positive during a sad time. Ask children to come up with their warrior name and make their most powerful warrior face!

For a group of kids, a fun game to play is Walking Warriors.To play this, instruct the children stand in a circle and start in Warrior I. While in the pose, walk around the class in a big circle in pace with your friends and breath. Use a chime, whistle, or other auditory commands to instruct the children to shift into Warrior II and Reverse Warrior.

How to:

Yoga Poses for Kids: Warrior I

First, start in Warrior I.

Be strong as a warrior. With feet planted, lift your arms high to the sky, feeling the strength rise from your core through your arms.

Hold this pose for a few breaths and say, “I am powerful.”

Yoga Poses for Kids: Warrior II

Open into Warrior 2.

Open your heart to one side. Take a deep breath in and exhale to bring your arms out, reaching out long and proud.

Hold this pose for a few breaths and say, “I stand in my power.”

Yoga Poses for Kids: Reverse Warrior

Stretch into Reverse Warrior.

Gently glide your left arm down your left leg, allowing it to rest. Bring your right arm high to the sky–bring your gaze high up. Feel the side of your body bend.

Hold this pose for a few breaths and say, “I expand my power.
