Boats (Boat and Bow Pose)
Dan • 1m 58s
Going on an adventure? Let's make all kinds of boats with Dan!
We'll start by practicing Boat Pose, a yoga pose that strengthens our core muscles and balance. Then we'll move on to bicycles, another exercise to strengthen our abdominals. Next, we'll practice a lateral stretch to lengthen our intercostal muscles. We'll move on to a wide legged forward fold, and end with belly boats, a.k.a. Bow Pose, to stretch out our tummies after all that core work!

A Slippery Fish (Sing Along)
Sing along with this fun classic and add some yoga-based movements!
Develop fine and gross motor skills, learn about opposite hands to connect the left and right side of your brain, and strengthen your core and back with a bit of a balance challenge!
Duck (Deep Squat & Forward Fold)
Kids can pretend to be a duck while practicing Deep Squat and Forward Fold, yoga poses that strengthen then stretch the legs and core. Forward folding sends freshly oxygenated blood to our brains, resulting in focus, energy and clarity!
Chomp Chomp (Sing Along)
Be an alligator! Kids can practice identifying right from left as well as lengthening their spine and side body in our song, Chomp Chomp! We end our song with a gentle Seated Forward Bend, relaxing the nervous system and winding down.
