Move and dance through this strong Dancing Warriors Flow.
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.
This week, we go over the Turtle Pose. Inspired by the patient turtle, this pose increases mental focus and stretches the arms, back, and legs. This pose looks like a turtle withdrawing into its shell!
