Welcome to the “mini yogis minute” weekly yoga tips for teachers and parents looking to create a more fun, engaging, and effective practice for their children. Be sure to check out mini yogis teacher training for all the tricks of the trade!

The yoga accessory of the year has certainly be the yoga wheel. Everyone is using them, photoing and videoing them.

Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

All these years, I have been using large balance balls to teach children how to backbend and flip over (chakrasana). But now…voila! The URBNfit Yoga Wheel is not just the right size for my pint-sized mini yogis, but it is stable and always rolls straight to keep the kiddos in alignment.

Check out three-year-old Flora as she not only flawlessly flips, but hams it up for the camera (this kid loves an audience!).

Notice how I stabilize her hips as she rolls back and over, so she doesn’t roll off sideways. Make sure your students push their arms straight, so they don’t collapse and crank their necks.
