Imagination Yoga combines yoga with storytelling to engage kids in playful exercise while building essential skills.
Imagination Yoga gets kids moving, but it’s much more than physical exercise. Visualization and mindfulness practices help students build essential capacities like awareness, compassion, emotional regulation, critical thinking, planning, and self-esteem.
Developed in the classroom by an early childhood teacher, Imagination Yoga weaves age-appropriate yoga flows into stories to encourage kids to be fully present and engaged, both mentally and physically. This approach provides rich opportunities to help children develop essential skills like self-awareness, empathy, visualization, confidence, and mental flexibility while simultaneously building stronger, healthier bodies.
