Arbor Day and the tree pose

April 27th is National Arbor Day, and what better way to celebrate this special day dedicated to trees than by practicing the tree pose with your child!

The following yoga tree coloring book page and poem are adapted from The ABCs of Yoga for Kids.

Tree Pose
I am an old and solid tree.
My roots grow deep into the ground beneath me.
Bending one leg, I bring my foot to my thigh.
Balancing can be tricky, but I'll give it a try!
I focus my sight on a single spot.
Yoga improves my concentration a lot!
