Tree Pose Freeze!

All you need for this game is enough vinyl spots (cloth placemats or carpet squares work good too) so each child has their own and music. I love "Under the Shady Tree" by Laurie Berkner Band.

Show students "Tree Pose" see yoga card in this post, if you are unsure. Instruct kids to dance around room (various locomotors: skip, hop, run, walk, crawl) then when music stops, find a spot and
freeze in tree pose. Hold tree pose until the music starts again. Lengthen and shorten the time of holding pose based on your group's abilities.

Great activity that requires listening, balance, and body control! A favorite for many ages.
