<p>Try a trip to the <strong>beach</strong> through beach yoga poses for kids!</p>
<p>Moving and playing together is great in any weather, but summer is especially enjoyable for beach yoga poses for kids. The sequence below will lead your family on a beach-inspired journey in your living room, backyard, or local park. Kids yoga is all about having fun, being imaginative, and engaging through movement.</p>
<p>Get out beach props like a beach umbrella, a beach chair, sunhats, or a bucket and spade. Look for beach-related books, toys, or photos. Put on your favorite beach music or the sound of ocean waves or animals. Make fun fruity drinks with umbrella straws. Cater to each of your senses.</p>
<p>Use your imagination! Once your “beach” is set up, jump in and act out what you find along the shoreline with your children. Discuss the “journey” with your children as you move together. What do they imagine seeing, hearing, feeling, and smelling.</p>
<p>The eight poses are listed in a specific sequence to invite flow from one pose to the next. Feel free to add or take out any of the poses to suit the needs and interests of your child. Being creative is always encouraged. Wear your comfortable beach clothing and practice barefoot. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t tried yoga before, just give it a go. The focus is on having fun, but please be safe.</p>
<h2>Beach Yoga Poses for Kids</h2>
<p>Kids yoga isn’t about perfect poses or rigorous exercise. It’s about participating in a healthy activity together that promotes a balanced lifestyle. Below find five beach yoga poses for kids to get you started on your pretend beach journey:</p>
<p>Sit back as if you are sitting in your beach chair. What smells do you notice at the beach?</p>
<p>Pretend you are the roof of the castle, and then come forward into a plank as if you are the bridge of the sandcastle. What does the sand feel like on your hands and in between your toes?</p>
<p>Lie on your belly, with the legs extended back behind you, lift your chest, and swim with your arms. What animals do you see in the water?</p>
<p>Lay on your back with arms and legs stretched out, breathe, and rest. What sounds do you hear?</p>
