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 improves blood circulation, irrigating the muscles of the back by stretching them from the nape to the heels, including the back of the thigh muscles. It also calms the mind and helps to alleviate your child’s stress.
