Planning a Halloween yoga or fitness class for kids? Or shoot, just a Halloween party? I can help!
I put together this playlist to pair with my Halloween Mom + Me class for kids and their parents. We had a “Glow-ga” flow, where we turned the lights down low, and wore a ton of glow sticks, and did some yoga! It was so fun!
Here’s two of my little yogis rocking their haunted tree poses!
I found this album on Apple Music called Halloween Favorites (Instrumental Party Music) and it was perfect. The whole album lasts about 20-25 minutes, which was perfect for the 3-8 year old age group that attended.
Mountain pose = Skeleton Pose! Then have them shake out all their bones
Tree pose = Haunted Tree! Have them sway in the wind like a tree
Chair pose = Witch on her Broomstick! Take big inhales, exhale with a witches cackle, then “fly” around the room like they’re on a broomstick!
Goddess pose = Ghost pose! Have them float their arms up and down while making ghost noises
Swan diving forward fold = Bat arms! Remember to take the rising up slowly (like a mummy, maybe!?)
Downward facing dog = Spider pose! Have them take their feet beyond hip width apart and walk around like a spider!
Cat/cow = Scaredy cat! Have them meow and hiss like a cat (you can also add in puppy pose here!)
Gate pose = Creaky gate! Have them make creaky sounds as they bend into their right and left gate poses
Cobblers pose with right and left twists = Owl pose! As the twist, have them “hoo!” like owls
Child’s pose = Pumpkin pose! I ended class here in child’s pose and read them a Halloween poem. Before I had them rise, I told them to think of a funny jack-o-lantern face to make, then I counted to three, and they popped up with their silly jack-o-lantern faces and it was so cute and so fun!
If you have kids that are able to follow a flow, I also thought of a “moon” sequence that would create a full circle when done on both the right and left sides so that it would make a full moon!
Flow together warrior 2, extended side angle, reverse warrior, and half moon on both sides and there you go!
