Innovative Props for Yoga

Do you love props as much as I do? I love placing that order! As I mentioned, a few weeks ago I took a course in teaching yoga to kids. This year I will be adding it to my repertoire at the preschool.  Just call me the jack of all trades! Good thing I have that rolling backpack! Here are some ideas that will refresh your prop closet (or in my case, apartment) for the upcoming year!

Soft and Squishy Colorful Balls- These are great for name games. Also passing balls with hands or feet!

Peacock Feathers- These are fun to teach balance and focus!

Finger Puppets- Any type of visuals can add layers to a child’s imagination.

I can’t wait until I receive them in the mail and start to use them! The kids are in for a real treat this year!

Do you use any of these in your classes already? Or do you have creative ideas to share? I would love to hear!

P.S. look for more prop ideas soon!


  1. Another great prop for kids is kites. The cheap kind you can get from pharmacies for about $3. You can use them as spot savers for games, or the children can pick what kite they want as their symbols. When they break- you only spent a few dollars on them!

  2. I seriously need help with props! All these teachers come in with big boxes of props and I don’t have any! Your future posts are greatly appreciated!
