At first, it may seem challenging to keep the attention of very young children from wandering. The solution is to make yoga fun and engaging for pre-schoolers. Use the yoga poses to foster their imagination. Ask
the child to meow like a cat when doing cat/cows or for downward dog they can bark and wag their tails. You can bring life to basic poses with games and singing.
You may find that letting your toddler choose their own bright and colorful mat will make yoga exciting. Each time you take out their special mat, they will look forward to practicing.
Check out the children's book Bamboo the Cat: An Interactive Yoga Story for Kids by Denise Hitch to introduce your children to yoga in a fun and creative way.
