Holiday Yoga: Journey to the Moon

Holiday Yoga: A Journey to the Moon

Monique of Green Acorns is with us today to share a lovely yoga routine that is perfectly suited for season…

This time of year can be a flurry of activities and preparations for many.  While it may be enjoyable, it is added activity to an often already full schedule and can be a cause of stress.  Our children can feel it too whether they are reacting to the stress of the adults around them or are experiencing their own.  Perhaps they are getting less sleep due to excitement or later bedtimes to accommodate special events.  Perhaps they are getting less time to play freely.  In parts of the world that now have shortened daylight hours and cold weather, children often have less time outdoors and, as a result, less physical activity.

Holiday Yoga: A Journey to the Moon

Yoga is a wonderful way for children to expend some restless energy and exercise their bodies.  It will also focus their energy and minds and bring a sense of calm and peace.

This month, I thought it would be fun to offer a Yoga sequence in which children really get to use their imaginations to transport themselves to another world… To take a journey to the moon.
