Monique Barker is with us to share a lovely way celebrate Valentine’s Day—partner yoga. Don’t miss her informative printable of poses at the bottom of this post!

I am thrilled to be back to share some more Yoga for children with you. In keeping with this month’s Valentine theme, I thought a sequence of partner poses would be appropriate. Your child can pair up with a sibling, a friend, or you.

Yoga for Kids: V-Day Edition

Before you begin, take the opportunity to talk with your child about the importance of showing kindness to others; about offering encouragement and support; about how we are all connected and that each of our actions impact others.

Perhaps you would like to start by reading one of your favorite books that touches on these subjects.

Through these poses, children will get to practice observation skills and cooperation. They should feel a connection with their partner and share their positive energy. Most importantly, they should have fun!

To get started, download the poses and instructions:

To learn about introducing Yoga to children through storytelling and to view some Yoga resources, you can review this post.

Enjoy and have a wonderful Valentine’s day!
