Beginners Yoga for Children: Meditation Mudra (Dhyana Mudra)

Mudras are hand and finger movements that can be practiced any time, anywhere. Nonetheless, it is recommended to practice them sitting, or in one of the following three yoga postures: easy, diamond, lotus, or half-lotus. Practice five to fifteen minutes with the older children; a minimum of ten deep breathing cycles through the nose for the younger ones. Don’t expect them to replicate perfectly. Make sure your child is relaxed; the pressure applied on the fingers must stay light. Eyes must be shut or looking directly ahead, breathing free.


This gesture appeases your child and improves their concentration. Depending on your child’s age, this particular exercise will last from three to fifteen minutes. Closing their eyes will enhance concentration.

  1. Sit comfortably in one of the poses mentioned above
  2. Position your hands in dhyana-mudra, where your right hand is tips of the thumbs in contact, resting in the hallow of your legs.
  3. Breathe normally, concentrating on your breathing.
