Beginners Yoga for Children: Flexibility – Feet

These flexibility exercises are perfect as an introduction into yoga. They also work on your child’s flexibility, “oil” the articulations, and maintain their muscles. They should be practiced in a relaxed environment, without straining. You can use your imagination and add head movements (yes, no, perhaps; etc.) or shoulder swimming, etc.

This pose loosens the child’s thighs, hips, legs, and ankle articulations.

  • Lie on your back. Bend your left leg while keeping your foot on the floor, so the base of your heel touches your left buttock. Bend the right leg while keeping your foot on the floor, so that the base of your heel touches your right buttock. Bend both arms and place them under your head. Stretch your whole body, from your head to the small of your back.

  • Extend both legs. Lift your left leg and make a circular movement with your foot. slowly and smoothly. Repeat three times. Switch legs.

  • With your arms extended on the floor, bring your arms up to align them with your shoulders, creating in a large T. Keeping your head on the floor, flip your left leg so your left foot touches your right hand. Come back to your initial position. Switch legs. Be gentle and fluid.
