It has been a while since we shared a kids yoga pose, so this week we present the Deer Pose from our winter workbook. This pose is a variation of the Warrior I pose. Deers are elusive, know how to listen, tread lightly and dash away when danger approaches. In the Deer Pose, think to yourself, I tread lightly with care.
For many, the passage into September means a major shift from Summer to academic year. That passage is marked by changes of season. The Autumn is a beautiful time to experience the world as it shifts from one phase to another. Long days and short nights turn to shorter days and longer nights. Summer days may have been filled with recreation, camp, family, and travel. Now schools days are filled with academics, homework, extracurricular activities, busy schedules, and less free time. Our Autumn yoga pose sequence is perfect for finding that balance in the fall.
Tall, grounded and strong - the mighty Tree benefits our world in many ways. The tree is kind to the world, animals and to humans. Through this pose, it is great to teach kids about kindness - how to be kind to others and to the environment. The Tree Pose reminds us that as our roots grow stronger, we are able to stand tall and stretch our branches to the sky.
