Every Friday we do sports and games with the kids at school. We feel it is important to also teach the kids about physical fitness (you can never start too young, right?) so we always start that time off with doing stretches and other exercises. Since I love yoga, and kids are usually pretty flexible, i like to include some yoga moves into our stretches. Now, I don't tell the kids we are doing yoga I tell them that we are doing "animal exercises". Those of you who have ever done yoga know that many of the positions have animal names. Here are the kids doing an "Upward dog/ downward dog" which I told them was called the Lion to get them to growl at the end.I think it is cute how you can see some of them growling in the pictures.
