Turtle Pose is a great pose to build strength in the legs, shoulders, and back.

**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 the world will smile with you.

  1. Have a seat and extend both of your legs out to the sides in a gentle straddle.
  2. Slide your arms under your knees and bend forward gently towards the earth.
