Beginners Yoga for Children: Sitting Pose – Tortoise

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 the child’s lower back flexibility. It expands their hip and shoulder range, making forward stretching easier. It tones the back, thigh, and hip muscles.

1. Sit with your legs extended in front of you and engaged.

2. Open your legs as much as you can. then bend them slightly.

3. Weave your arms under your knees. palms towards the floor.

4. Bend forward and try to touch the floor with your chin. Push your heels upward to bend your torso with more ease.

5. Hold the pose for a few seconds. breathing normally.

6. Slowly come back to the initial position.

7. Repeat three times.
