YogaKids in Roller Coaster Pose

The concept of the roller coaster was born as ice slides built in the 17th century in Russia. Sleds were rolled down 70 foot drops of wood covered with a thick layer of ice. 100 years later the French added wheels and eventually tracks. For our YogaKids version, all you need is fearlessness and a friend or two. No tickets to buy. Let’s roll!

Pose Instructions

  1. Sit down with legs spread wide. Put your hands around each other’s waist. Hold tight.
  2. As the roller coaster climbs up the hill, lean back.
  3. Lean forward as you speed downward.
  4. Be brave and raise your hands as you lean right and left.
  5. When you’ve had enough, unbuckle and collapse back. Rest.
