Help your child to feel confident and secure about their transition to school.Read more
Yoga is a great way to engage our mind and body together. The stretches and poses are a great way to get some daily exercise, and the story will help your child’s imagination and language.
Hopefully you will already have enjoyed some of our previous yoga experiences, and so your child will already be familiar with some of the poses in today’s story. Do not worry about getting through the whole story in one session, as you can easily revisit this in additional sessions.
Begin playing the story, and participating in the moves with your child. Watch how the pose is modelled on the screen and then have a go yourself. Ensure you are on hand to support your child and ensure they are moving their body in the appropriate way for each position.
Pause the story as often as you need to, talking with your child about what is going on, and encouraging them to make the appropriate position of the character as outlined in the story.
Continue for as long as your child can remain focused for and is happy to participate. You can stop at any time. You may like to go over the positions they practiced today and see if they can be the shark/jellyfish or frog!
