Throw a yoga party!

Hosting a yoga party is an awesome idea! Practicing yoga in a group setting offers motivation, synergy, and positive vibes. Yoga celebrations can be enjoyed by adults or kids, making them perfect for birthdays, bridal showers, or any fun get-together.

What is yoga ?

Yoga is an age-old practice that originated in India, encompassing elements like controlled breathing, balance, various physical poses, and mental concentration. Engaging in yoga helps us learn the art of being fully present in the moment

How to plan a yoga party?

Here’s the complete guide on how to host an awesome yoga party:

Set a budget

Before diving into your yoga party planning, it’s essential to set a budget and commit to staying within your financial limits. There’s no need to overspend – keep it within your means.

Decide when It will be

Get out your calendar and pick a date. Then, figure out the start and end times for the party.

Decide where it will be

Here are some questions to consider:

  1. Where will you host the yoga party?
    • Will it be indoors or outdoors?
    • What size of space do you need for the yoga activities?
    • Where will your guests gather initially?
    • Where will you set up the food and drinks?

  2. For kids’ birthday parties, it’s a good idea to have a seating area for parents with easy access to food and drinks. If you’re not hosting the event at your home, make sure to book a suitable space

Make a guest list

Be practical when deciding how many guests to invite to your yoga event. Typically, Yoga Parties can handle around 20 guests, but you should also take other factors into account:

  • Is this a party for kids or adults?
  • Are you inviting all the kids or just a small group of close friends from school?

Choose the dress code

When practicing yoga, it’s essential to be free and comfortable in your clothing, allowing you to move without any restrictions. That’s why it’s a good idea to ask your guests to wear comfortable attire like leggings and a yoga tank. This way, everyone can fully enjoy the yoga session!

Invite your guests

Getting the word out about your yoga party is important. You can prepare invitations and send them through mail, or email, or even give your friends a call to invite them. We recommend sending out the invitations around three weeks before the party date. This way, everyone will have enough time to mark their calendars and get ready for some yoga fun!

Plan what food you want to serve

Creating a menu for your yoga party is essential. Make a list of the healthy snacks and drinks you’d like to serve and schedule when to prepare each item. Some things can be made a day in advance, like frozen fruit popsicles, or you can opt for ready-made options that you can buy.

The refreshment table will feature light and healthy options such as chopped vegetables, fruit smoothies, cold water, and a variety of teas. For more food ideas and inspiration, you can check out my Pinterest yoga party board. It’s all about keeping it wholesome and delicious!

Plan ahead if you need to rent something

If you plan to rent items for the yoga party, like tables, chairs, or yoga mats, it’s important to make your reservations well in advance. This ensures that you’ll have everything you need for your event.

Plan the yoga activity

Consider the type of activity you want at your party and who will lead it. You can either hire a professional yoga instructor or select yoga videos from YouTube. Ensure you have an adequate number of mats for your guests or ask them to bring their own. Here are some exciting ideas for activities at the yoga party:

Do a small art project

Get creative with a DIY Custom Painted Yoga Mat activity!
Allow your guests to showcase their individual style.
Each guest will be provided with a blank yoga mat and an array of tools like pencils, markers, brushes, stencils, acrylic craft paints, and fabric paints to craft their personalized masterpiece.

Let’s get artistic with the “Paint a Gratitude Rock” activity!
Find smooth, flat rocks and give them a good wash before you start painting. Don’t forget to seal the rock before you begin the creative process. Use brushes, stencils, and acrylic colors to bring your designs to life.

Yoga coloring pages

Coloring Yoga pages can be a fantastic and creative activity. Once you’ve colored them, consider putting those beautiful pages to good use! You can transform them into unique book or journal covers, create one-of-a-kind scrapbooks and journals, and let your creativity shine.

Yoga games

Yoga birthday parties aren’t complete without some fun games. These games offer a variety of benefits for both kids and adults. Here are some exciting game ideas:

Freeze Game
When the music stops, everyone strikes a yoga pose and holds it until the music resumes.

Yogi Says
This is a yoga twist on the classic “Simon Says” game. The instructor calls out various yoga poses, like “Yogi says, Downward Dog.” If the instructor calls out a pose without saying “Yogi Says,” and a guest does the pose, they sit out.

Yoga in the Dark
Add some excitement by using glow accessories like necklaces and bracelets while practicing yoga in the dark.

Yoga Bingo Game
Yoga Bingo is a lively and engaging game suitable for all ages, making it perfect for both small and large groups.

Music Mats
Play this game similar to musical chairs, but instead of chairs, you use mats.

Mindfulness and Meditation
Meditation is another great activity you can enjoy as a group. Practice paying attention to your thoughts, feelings, and sensations in the moment. You can also venture outside with your guests for a mindful walk, where you use all your senses to notice the details around you, such as sights, sounds, smells, and feelings. After the walk, gather in a circle and share your sensations, thoughts, and emotions with the group. It’s a fantastic way to promote mindfulness and connect with your guests.

Yoga cards for kids

Make use of these yoga pose cards to showcase different yoga poses. Select a yoga card and place it on the ground. Then, invite everyone to give that pose a try. It’s a fun and interactive way to explore various yoga poses together!

Plan the music list

Make sure your playlist fits the yoga theme, and it’s essential to ensure you have good sound quality. You can use platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, or YouTube Music to curate the perfect yoga-inspired playlist. Good music enhances the entire yoga experience!

Plan the design and decoration

Prepare the room and table decorations, including flowers, name cards, plates, and napkins. Consider unique lighting designs if necessary to create the right ambiance. Enhance the party area with sage or green leaves for a calming atmosphere. You can also use small stones as decorations, where you can write the names of your guests or incorporate yoga phrases and quotes to add an extra touch of inspiration.

Yoga party favors

Wrap up the event by presenting your guests with these yoga-themed favors and include small thank-you cards to show your appreciation.

Set Up Your Own DIY Photo Booth

You’ll want to have a camera and a tall tripod that can extend to eye level for good-quality shots. Proper lighting is essential to capture great photos. Additionally, consider using a printed fabric backdrop and printable yoga props to enhance the overall aesthetics.

Make a shopping list

Your shopping list should cover everything you need for refreshments, decorations, and guest gifts, along with cleaning supplies and materials to ensure your space is clean both before and after the event.
