Butterfly Pose is a great pose to stretch the legs, hips, and spine.
**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.
- Have a seat and bring the bottoms of your feet together with your knees out like a pair of butterfly wings (you can even flap them up and down like a butterfly if you want to).
- Grab your big toes or ankles with your hands and stretch forward over your legs.
- Focus on a nice spot in front of you, and think happy thoughts.
