During these days under quarantine due to Covid-19, we’re all under a lot of pressure. It’s a stressful time for all of us, kids included. We can use Yoga to work on those emotions. This is a project for the whole family as a way to keep active but also check in on each other emotionally. Check out our video on YouTube (in English and Italian).
Here are the instructions to do this project at home:
On a piece of paper, make a rainbow (just the outline, no colours)
Make circles for each emotion (you can make faces if you have little kids or just write the words, colour the circles in with a colour of your choice or use the colours I’ve suggested)
Every day, get each family member to choose an emotion and then the whole family has to do the associated Yoga pose.
Feel free to add your own emotions or Yoga poses to the practice!
Here are my suggestions:
Angry – Red – 3 big lion breaths
Sad – Blue – Butterfly pose
Scared – Black – Warrior 1 pose
Anxious – Orange – Forward Fold Pose
Tired – Brown – Cobra to Downward Dog Pose
Bored – Grey – Sun Salutation Sequence
Happy – Yellow – Dancing Star
Excited – Pink – Wheel (or reverse table top)
Funny – Green – Eagle
Peaceful – Purple – Easy Lotus Pose
Have fun and help each other! Remember, this is a team building activity aimed at making the whole family feel better. There’s no right or wrong in Yoga for kids, just fun. Help each other out and be safe in your practice.
Happy Yoga-ing 🙂
