Beginners Yoga for Children: Sitting Pose – Upward Plank (Toboggan)

Practice with your child. Just like the standing postures, the sitting postures usually become more appealing when practiced as a game. For example, while in upward plank you can let a ball roll down the child’s back.


This posture strengthens the arms and wrists of your child. It also improves the range of their shoulder movements and stretches the torso.

  • Sit with your legs extended in front of you, your feet together, and your toes pointing up.
  • Place your hands flat on the floor by your hips. fingers pointing in front of you.
  • Slightly bend your knees so your feet are flat on the floor.
  • While inhaling. bring your body up. keeping your arms and legs extended. The whole body is stretched. head back. and torso arched. Hold the pose for a whole breathing cycle.
  • Exhale while going back to your initial position.
  • Repeat three times.

You can help your child lift up their body so the stretch is easier
