Beginners Yoga for Children: Life 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 helps cure a child’s eye and sleeping problems. It shrinks blood vessel size and restores strength. When practiced regularly, it is an energy booster.

  1. Sit in easy pose, cross-legged.
  2. Bring the tips of your thumbs, your ring fingers, and your pinkie fingers together, while keeping the two other fingers of each hand extended.
  3. Hands can now rest on the thighs or knees.
