Beginners Yoga for Children: Standing Pose – Pendulum

Because standing postures require no equipment and very little space, they can be practiced anytime, anywhere. They can be suggested to your child during a lengthy wait, possibly inviting other children and making it a group game.

This pose improves the flexibility of your child’s back. It develops stability and balance. It prepares for forward leaning poses, like river and giraffe.

  • Stand. legs slightly apart. Put both hands on the back of your head.
  • Bend forward so your head is at the level of your knees.
  • Using a pendulum movement, bring your head to your right knee then to your left knee.
  • Repeat this back and forth movement at least three times.
