The Spring season is often a time for children to play outside, participate in outdoor sports, and enjoy the feeling of being outside in the fresh air.
Children come to understand the world through what they experience in nature. Invoking the elements of nature during the Spring will help them learn vocabulary that enables improved communication. What do you like about springtime? What changes do you notice outside?
The poses we chose are a sample of things found in nature such as the turtle, the rainbow, and the flower. The poses are fun and accessible to most people. We recommend having fun while exploring these poses. Don't overemphasize the form of the pose, rather focus on the energy the children put behind their participation.
One fun tip: When exploring turtle pose, invoke the feeling of feeling shy or overwhelmed. Retreat into the shell until you are ready to join the others. Then when you are ready, come out of your shell, sit up tall, look around and take the world in.
Enjoy these poses with the children you love!
