Yoga and Mindfulness for children and Teens.
5 Yoga poses for little superheroes
Bringing themes in to our yoga practices with children can be such a good way to keep them engaged and get clear on our intention.
When I think about super heroes and how we can use this theme in relation to Yoga, I think about ways that we can remind our children how super they are and help them to build confidence. I think about power poses that help us to take up space (Highly recommend the ted talk by Amy Cuddy about body language >> watch here). I think about ways we can be superheroes by making a difference in someone's day or helping to protect the planet by caring for the environment. I think about what talents we each have as individuals and what makes us super. And I think about building strength, awareness and being able to relax.
It is just one theme, but there is so much that you can do with it!
In this post, I'll be sharing with you 5 poses for your little superhero that you can practice at home! (Teachers may also like to bring this theme into their classes).
Pose One: Listening
Pose two: Balance
Pose three: Low flying
Pose Four: Let's Fly!
Pose five rest
