Tipping Star turns Star Pose into a core strengthening yoga activity for kids of all ages! Laugh and have fun as children work on their balance, tip over, and try again.

Watch and help kids to work on both sides. You’ll be amazed at how quickly they learn to hold themselves up, even if it’s just for a few seconds! 

Some of our most popular kids yoga activities that incorporate Tipping Star are our Balancing Series and Harold’s Circus! Both are fun and easy ways to bring yoga into elementary schools, preschool, or yoga class. 

This pose also makes for a fun kite, flying high in the sky, in Let’s Go Fly a Kite!
