3 Easy Yoga Tools for Kids (No Mat, No Problem!)

Are you looking for a fun way to bond with your tiny humans while also promoting physical and mental well-being? Yoga is a great activity for both kids and adults, and it can be done right in the comfort of your own home. But do you need a bunch of fancy equipment to get started? Not at all! Here are three tools you need to help you get started with yoga at home (with the options of using items you probably already have at home!)

1. Yoga Mat
A yoga mat is a great tool to give your tiny humans a sense of ownership over their yoga space. However, if you don't have one, don't worry! You can use a blanket, towel, rug, or even the grass outside as your yoga mat. The key is to find a comfortable and safe space where you can practice.

2. Breathing Ball
A breathing ball, like the Hoberman sphere, can be a fun and interactive way to teach kids about deep breathing. This tool expands and contracts as you breathe, making it a great visual aid for breathing exercises. However, if you don't have a breathing ball, there are plenty of other visual aids you can use, such as blowing bubbles, using a stuffed toy on your belly, blowing up a balloon, or blowing on a scarf.

3. Yoga Cards
Yoga cards can provide a visual point of reference for poses and also allow for creative exploration and learning through play. That's why we recommend Metta Play bilingual yoga cards, which feature diverse illustrations and are available in Spanish, French, Indonesian and Mandarin. But if you don't want to wait for shipping - you can download a printable version that'll be downloaded into your inbox instantly!

Remember, the most important tools you need for yoga are your body, mind, and breath. Let your little ones explore their bodies and breath in a safe and supportive environment. But don't let the lack of fancy equipment stop you from trying yoga with your tiny humans. Get creative with what you have and have fun exploring the wonderful world of yoga together!

Metta Play bilingual yoga cards are available here or the print-at-home version that's sent to you instantly!
