How to play yoga Jenga® GIANT™

These step-by-step instructions on how to play yoga Jenga® GIANT™ will make your group workouts even more exciting!

Preparing your yoga Jenga® GIANT™ game

The first step to playing yoga Jenga® GIANT™ is researching different yoga poses and breathing exercises. Then, write on each block the name of the pose or the breathing exercise by using your Genuine Chalk Ink® Wet Wipe Marker. Be sure to include easy to difficult poses. Since there are 54 pieces, you may repeat the poses and breathing exercises throughout the game, perhaps emphasizing the postures you most like (or find the most challenging!). Mix the pieces around in a pile, then build the Jenga® GIANT™ tower, and prepare to start playing.

Yoga Jenga® GIANT™ game taking turns

On each player’s turn, he or she must pick a block from the Jenga® GIANT™ game tower, perform the pose or breathing exercise described on it and then add the block back to the tower to continue building it. While the player is performing the yoga pose, the others have to watch closely that the pose or breathing exercise is performed correctly and that the player is following the Jenga® GIANT™ game rules. One wrong move, and it’s game over!

Yoga Jenga® GIANT™ game all together

If it’s an intense exercise you're looking for, then playing the “all together version” of the yoga Jenga® GIANT™ game is the way to go. Instead of taking turns to perform the yoga pose, every pose or exercise has to be performed by everyone in the group at the same time. This keeps everyone’s heart rate going, and the anticipatory thrill of avoiding the crash increases!

Mindfulness Yoga Jenga® GIANT™

Being present and aware of your thoughts and physical state can be difficult nowadays since daily life can sometimes be overwhelming. By adding a mindfulness aspect to your yoga Jenga® GIANT™ game, “being present” may no longer be an unachievable goal. The best way to do this is to start by adding a mindful component such as focusing on only one part of the body. For example, set up your Jenga® GIANT™ game with poses that only stretch or strengthen your lower back. This will help you focus on that area and increase your awareness and concentration. You can change body parts when you start a new game. Stretching has never been this interactive and fun!

Yoga Jenga® GIANT™ for children

Children tend to be more active, therefore yoga Jenga® GIANT™ might be a great option to keep them entertained, in shape, and starting to develop their own ability to be mindful. A great way to involve children is to make them part of the setting-up process, explain all the poses beforehand. This will improve their flexibility, teamwork, concentration, and breathing.
