Sneaky Trees Yoga Game
I learned a version of this game during my yoga teacher training with Rainbow Kids Yoga in Tuscany in 2014 and created this adaption to use with larger groups. Last year I created a "Halloween" version of the game that's super fun & silly!
2) Place objects in the room to encourage the students to focus on/look at while in TREE POSE to help steady their balance.
3) HALLOWEEN VERSION: The game is played the same way, but I start by turning out *most* of the lights in the room. Then, I tell a story of a witch who lived in a forest who had magical powers. She didn't very much like halloween and would turn children into trees (forever!) if they tried to sneak into her forest on halloween night. I tell the children I am the witch and if the can sneak into my forest and take my powers away they will save halloween! I wear a witched hat and the first child to reach me gets to wear the hat and pretend to be the witch for the next round. The game is basically played the same way - just with a spooky story and a witches hat :)
Let me know if you try this game with your kiddos OR if you come up with another version below!
