Yoga Poses

kids yoga mat

tree

Stand with your feet together, arms at your side. Take a deep breath in, raise your arms out to the side and up towards the sky. Breathe out and imagine that your feet are roots planted into the ground. Stretch out your hands and fingers towards the sun like branches and leaves. Close your eyes and imagine the wind gently blowing you as you gently sway from side to side. Take a few deep breaths, and slowly release.

lion

Sit on your mat in a comfortable position. Take a deep breath in and as you breathe out open your mouth as wide as you can while roaring your loudest roar. Do this again only this time with your tongue stretched out past your lower lip. Don’t forget to ROAR!
