MINI YOGA at home with MiniTFO

Mar 23, 2020


TFO, the Ontario francophone television station, has added new episodes to its MINI YOGA series (videos are in French). Comprised of twenty minute episodes, each video features a different animal. Inspired by the animal and its habitat, Josee, Lexie and Christopher present a short mimed story. 

Many of the yoga moves and poses include a version for people with limited mobility which can be done while seated in a chair. Children usually also join in, to show kids how to do the different yoga poses. 

The poses are easy and the stories are playful and full of laughter. 

MINI YOGA is a great way to start your day, stretching and laughing, and can be done by the whole family from the comfort of your living room.
