Mountain Pose is a great pose to build strength in the legs and also help boost self-confidence.
**Remember to practice breathing deep breaths and see if you can hold each pose for 4-5 breaths, if you are comfortable doing so. Make sure to invite your grown-ups to watch you do the pose. You can also practice repeating one of Wuf Shanti’s Mantras while you do the pose because part of yoga is also to clear your mind and think happy thoughts. Most importantly, remember to have fun and be gentle with yourself!
Mantra: Smile and Say Thank you.
- Stand up tall with both feet rooted down like a tree.
- Arms are by your side with your palms facing forward.
- Gently sway back and forth, and then stop with your weight balanced evenly on your feet.
- Breathe deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth.
