Horse Pose helps to build strength and stamina in the legs and create a sense of 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: Think Well to Be Well.
- Standing in mountain pose, step your feet apart, turning both your feet slightly out and away from each other.
- Bend into both knees and rest your hands on your thighs keeping your back straight and strong.
- You can even make the horse sound if you want to have a little more fun.
