I have had requests for Animal and Chair Yoga classes following on from our successful fundraiser for the Lido buildings last year. I wanted to offer something to appeal to all ages to help raise money for this cause and because I use the hall to teach yoga. We had great fun and raised money with the help and support of local people and businesses.
Lin Bridgeford - Bios Yoga
Many yoga poses use English names based on the animals they represent. The poses can be adapted to suit children of all ages. The kids can join in to do the poses and make the animal noises related to the poses, run around doing their own thing, or just watch the from the sidelines.
This is a fun way to engage children into yoga in a fun and freely expressive way. The more boisterous kids can let off steam by doing more vigorous poses to start with before calming them down towards the end before sending them home.
Below you can see us doing the frog pose accompanied by a cacophony of "rivet rivet", the crab pose, lion's breath with a load "roar" and calming down with starfish. Other poses we did included butterfly, camel, cat, cow, crane, crocodile, dog, eagle, locust, snake, swan and handstand just for fun.
"Lin's Animal Yoga was fantastic! My two boys loved posing and jumping as different animals, Great fun. They are keen to do it again!"
"Animal yoga for children was great! It was fun and engaging. My daughter really enjoyed it! She has been practicing animal poses ever since. Lin is very good with children and it's a great way to get them into yoga"
