Did you know that kids can do Yoga? Well, apparently I’m a mountain tortoise and didn’t know that. Until Fun N Laughter invited me to attend a Yoga trial class by YogaBugs.
Okay, photography and videography were not allowed in the class, so I am going to use screen captures from the YouTube video by YogaBugs. When you have access to WIFI, you can go watch the whole 20-minutes video.
YogaBugs Singapore Class at Fun N Laughter
The class I attended was for 2 year olds. The instructor explained that Yoga classes for 2 year olds involved a lot of story-telling and music. The lesson I attended revolved around going on a jungle adventure (If the Barney song is ringing in your head now, you have been watching TOO MUCH Barney).
We started by rowing a boat to the jungle. The kids were encouraged to sing ‘row row row your boat’ while doing a leg-stretching exercise (forward to 6:00 on the video to see it)
At the jungle, we encountered different animals and the kids had to do simple yoga poses associated with each animal.
First animal we spotted: A Lion! (Video 9:35)
We see a tree! Let’s pose like a tree! (Video 11:00)
Let’s put on binoculars to look further! (Video 11:40)
We spotted a snake! (Video 13:00)
And monkeys! (Video 14:40)
The class ends with relaxation exercises with the lights switched off. (Video 18:10)
It was an interesting experience. However, my 2 year old boy was highly uncooperative and kept walking around the room and not doing what he was suppose to. The other 2 girls, also the same age, were slightly more cooperative. I personally felt the class would be more suitable for slightly older children, maybe 3-4 year olds.

[disclaim]Disclosure: This yoga class was a FREE trial. I was not paid to attend, nor was i obliged to do a blog post for it. I’m just sharing because it’s the first time I attended a Yoga class for kids, and it was free so why not?[/disclaim]
