I got an email from a subscriber recently asking for some ideas for the game, “Yogi Says.”

Now, I did not invent this game, either the “Simon says” version or the newer adapted version of Yogi Says…

But I do enjoy the game and I have played it quite a bit with my students.

And I’ve got lots of ideas for these games, my dears.

Here’s why we love Yogi Says

  • Yogi Says is fun for kids!
  • It’s easy to do in 2 minutes or less
  • Most kids know how to play already
  • It’s competitive in a way that doesn’t make kids cry
  • It builds mindful listening skills

They really like having leadership opportunities, so feel free to let them lead the game once you’ve played it a few times. Especially at ages 7 and up.

Before that, they may be a bit forgetful and not as able to remember what poses or actions they can do.

    With more space, you can definitely add in more action movements, and animal movements. Those are always a big hit. Especially for kids 7 and under.

    Have fun and keep doing yoga.
