Idea for inspiring new shapes and yoga poses.

Kids yoga is all about having fun making shapes with the body. This is a fun activity to get them to start using their imaginations with shape. This idea was inspired by ‘The Art Book for Children’. Here’s an image ‘Women, Bird by Moonlight’ by Joan Miro that you can use in a lesson plan involving making shapes with the body by making up yoga poses. Kids yoga educators try this exercise: have the children focus on the image and ask them if they see the women and the bird? Which is which? Then give them a sheet of paper and a pencil and ask them to try drawing a woman and a bird with their eyes closed. You can then practice making up poses using just one body part at a time. For example: knee, tummy, hand, foot, elbow, bottom. Have fun!! Be creative!
