Chair Pose helps to strengthen the legs and tummy, improve focus and enhance gratitude.
**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.
- Standing in mountain pose, bend your knees and pretend you are going to sit in a chair.
