My kids have been greatly enjoying the Yoga Pretzels cards they got from their babysitter for Christmas. It’s so cute to see them bend in all sorts of curves, or trying to keep their balance. There are 50 cards, each of them giving a suggestion for a pose. There are, for instance, balance poses, stretch poses, stand and bend poses, and, most popular with my children, the partner poses (they need each other to perform the pose!). There are also cards that give breathing or relax exercises, or suggestions for games that enhance teamwork and creativity. It’s great fun, and especially 6-year-old Sara has been able to really relax after her yoga. Pim (almost 5) loves it too, his favourite pose, of course, is the ‘Warrior’.
Yoga Pretzels is available through Amazon (UK or US ).
At the nursery, my toddler does holistic play and yoga. He is so into it and loves to show me the down dog. He does as well the “elephant” but not sure if such a position exists! He is so funny. This book goes into my wish list. Thanks
We’ve had Yoga Pretzels for a while and has caused manylaughs amongst my children but they have also enjoyed the stretches etc!
Great fun. We also love Babar’s Yoga for Elephants – my eldest enjoys trying to bend himself into all sorts of poses.
