The Holiday Season is almost here! I previously did a Halloween obstacle course class that my classes adored! It was challenging, fun, and relevant to yoga. These are my favorite ideas for a Winter & Holiday themed obstacle course! Feel free to print them out, glue them onto cardboard paper, and laminate them for easier use!
Polar Bear Crawl: Walk in your Downward Dog like an Arctic polar bear!
Snowflake Breathing: Practice snowflake breathing with pretend snowflakes. Try to breathe all the snowflakes into a bucket!
Snow Angels: Spread your arms and legs out wide and make a snow angel with your body!
Balance Snowball: Put a white pom pom ball on a spoon. See if you can balance the snowball on the spoon from one end of a yoga strap to the other!
Ice Skating: Move and slide your feet across the floor like an ice skater on felt pieces. See if you can be strong and still in Dancer’s pose!
Hot Chocolate Breathing: Holding a paper cup, pretend like you have steaming hot chocolate in it. Breathe in the nice chocolate smell and breathe out to cool your hot chocolate down.
Ski Jump: The ski jumper makes turns around yoga blocks and lands in chair pose.
Snowy Tree: Balance a foam snowflake on top of your head while balancing in tree pose.
Holiday Lights Meditation: Focus on a tea light candle and practice deep breathing.
Sledding: Pretend to go sledding in your seated forward fold. Watch out for those bumps!
Freezing Toega: Pick up the little snowballs with your toes and put them on a plate!
Penguin Waddle: Walk slowly and waddle across a yoga strap like a penguin!
I hope you enjoy this obstacle course with your family and students!
