Body Sox is an yoga experience like no other. Children love to stretch in it as many ways as possible. There are multiple ways to use the Body Sox from games to relaxation.
WHAT IS IT?
Body Sox are fun, therapeutic sacks constructed from four-way stretch lycra. Body Sox teach both adults and children about gross motor control by providing proprioceptive feedback that leads to a new awareness of the body.
BODY SOX BENEFITS
- Allows children to kinesthetically feel their body
- Coordinates movement
- Enhances creativity and imagination
- Provides heavy work/deep pressure, which is calming and organizing
- Provides tactile input
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH YOGA?
Children can play Yogi Says, which is just like Simon Says, but with yoga poses. Better yet, let them create their own Body Sox pose, crawl, walk, or slither in it.
Body Sox can also be used in relaxation as a calming sensory escape. Put on relaxing music and/or weighted materials to enhance the experience.
