Monkey Movement brings a fun twist to any yoga activity! Introduce this active movement to yoga as kids strengthen their arms and legs and improve their balance.

Some of our favorite books that incorporate Monkey Movement are Silly Sally and It’s a Tiger!

To encourage breathing and full body movement, make monkey sounds while swinging arms from side to side!

Jump your legs out wide and bend your knees.

Step 3
As you straighten your legs, swing your arms to one side.

Step 4
Bend your knees and swing your arms down, then straighten your legs as you swing your arms through to the other side.

Step 5
Repeat this movement several times, swinging your arms back and forth in a smooth motion.

Step 6
Lower your arms, and step your feet back together.
