Child Pose helps stretch the hips and back, and also promotes a sense of inner-peace, calm, and well-being.
**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: Think Well to Be Well.
- Starting in table pose, slowly sit back, dropping your hips towards your heels, big toes touching.
- The knees can open wider if it is more comfortable for you.
- Let your forehead rest on the earth and stretch your arms out in front of you.
- Remember to take a few deep breaths while you close your eyes and think happy thoughts.
