Beginners Yoga for Children: Sitting Pose – Head-to-Knee Forward Bend

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 pose stretches your child’s spine and shoulders. It is recommended to dissipate headaches, stimulate the liver and kidneys, and facilitate digestion.

Sit with your legs extended in front of you.

While breathing, bring your right foot to your pelvis, sole touching your left thigh.

Turn your torso to the left.

While exhaling, bend forward and grab the foot or the ankle of the extended leg. Breathe normally for a few seconds.

Switch sides.

Repeat two or three times alternating sides.
