Sphinx Pose helps to stretch the spine, shoulders, and chest.

**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.

  1. Lay down on your tummy and prop yourself up on your elbows and forearms, creating a gentle back bend.
  2. Roll your shoulders down the back as you shine your heart forward.
