We play the Yoga Game!




I know, it is hard to take away the anxiety in us during these crucial times, but we can try. The Yoga Game incorporates fun, puzzle solving, playing with nature, muscle stretching and calming breathing exercises, which may beat the blues and anxiety brought about by the Covid-l9 pandemic.
 
The game is consists of many yoga poses that imitate things we find in nature.  Our young learners, for sure, would love to pretend they are a tree or an animal and connect with the natural world around them. Yoga game is not about competition among our young children. Encourage children to do the poses within the limit of their bodies; in comfortable and enjoyable ways.
 
Being a yoga enthusiast, I believe that young children will derive many benefits from the game.  Yoga game relaxes the mind and the body as well; improves confidence, coordination, concentration, flexibility, and strength.

The yoga game promotes the development of an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds children. It brings that marvellous inner light that they have to the surface. 

Each pose is practice for one session of about 20-30 minutes each day while keeping the body relaxes and the breathing slow and steady.

Pose l 
I flit and flutter everywhere, happy, free, as light as air.  With silent grace, I land on things, and sunlight dances on my wings.  What am I?


 I am a butterfly!

 Pose 2
Softer than a breath, that's me.  I'm known to be bubbly.  A ball of black and yellow fuzz, my song is like a low, deep buzz.  What am I?


 I am a bumblebee!


 Pose 3

One foot stands planted on the ground, and in my mind I send roots down. Balancing, my arms stretch high, like branches reaching to the sky.  What am I?
I am a tree!

 Pose 4
I love a place that's warm and nice, to rest my paws and dream of mice.  Where in between my nap and snack, there's time to arch and stretch my back.  What am I?

 I am a cat!


 Pose 5
I can reach way up high and paint my magic in the sky.  Radiant colours everywhere, see them balance in the air. What am I?

I am a rainbow!


 Pose 6
No arms or legs to help me climb, I slither and slide along my spine.  Some say I have a dangerous kiss.  Beware of me, when I stretch, I hissss.  What am I?


 Pose 7
I am grey, I am small,  My back is rounded like a ball.  I nibble cheese and things like that, then scamper past and tease the cat.  What am I?

I am a mouse!

 Pose 8
I am much bigger than a hill.  I stand strong.  I stand still.  Though wind and snow cover my face, I stand majestic in my place.  What am I?

I am a mountain!

 Pose 9
I soar above the land and sea or sit upon a giant tree.  Perching poised with piercing eyes, I silently search sea and skies.  What am I?

I am an eagle!

 Pose 10
They call me King, though I have no crown.  But I can make a mighty sound!  I crouch down low on the jungle floor.  And then I leap and pounce and ROAR!  What am I?

I am a lion!

Pose 11
I burst up through the warm blue sea.  Then dive down low and splash with glee.  I click and cluck and whistle sound.  My laughter bubbles all around.  What am I?
 I am a dolphin!
  

Pose 12
I stretch my arms and legs out wide, I hold my head with grace and pride.  I glow and twinkle and shine so bright.  It feels good to share my light.  What am I?

 I am a star!


 Pose l3
The squishy mud of lakes and ponds inspires me to sing my songs.  I croak, I swim, I hop about.  I squat and stick my tongue way out.  What am I?

I am a frog!

 Pose l4
I have a hump upon my back.  It is my secret water sack.  I come from an exotic land, of scorching sun and desert sand.  What am I?

I am a camel

Pose l5
Slow and steady wins the race.  I do not like a hectic pace.  A simple shell is all I own, to go within, to be at home.  What am I?

I am a tortoise!


Pose l6
I breathe the air, the air breathes me.  I am the land.  I am the sea.  I am a cloud that drifts above.  I am special.  I am love.   What am I?

 I am me!
