Here you will find a collection of our Kid’s Yoga & Gross Motor Skills posts.
Once the basics have been mastered, gross motor skills can sometimes take a backseat to fine motor skills and more obvious academic pursuits, but providing and allowing our children to experience a variety of gross motor challenges and stimuli is one of the best things we can do for their emotional regulation skills and brain development.
I try to provide a good mix of indoor and outdoor gross motor activities, since we are sometimes stuck inside due to weather conditions, or one child’s ill-timed nap. We have also created a small recreation room in our basement which has been a lifesaver during the frigid Canadian winters.
We try to deepen our yoga practice at least three times per week, as I find that not only is it great for “stretching the sillies out,” it also starts the day off with calming, rhythmic movements and an affirming sense of routine. I also love that we can do it together, allowing for connection and reminding me to take care of myself.
