Yoga poses for kids to stay active

To explore some best poses of yoga poses for kids, Health Shots spoke to Himalayan Siddhaa Akshar, Founder, Akshar Yoga Research and Development Centre, who listed down a few asanas to stay active.

“Make yoga a fun activity instead of a serious endeavour. Make sure it’s fun, fascinating, and engrossing enough to draw the child in and encourage creativity. Establishing a morning yoga routine with your child will enable them to be more active and focused on their daily tasks,” according to Akshar.

So, here are 3 yoga asanas to keep your kid warm, energized, and active throughout the winter season:

1. Adomukhiswanasna (Downward facing dog)

It engages your core and works several muscles of the body. Additionally, it enhances blood circulation throughout the body, giving you a feeling of energy.

Here’s how to perform it:

  • Start out on your knees and palms.
  • Place the knees below the hips and the palms beneath the shoulders.
  • Straighten your knees by pushing your hips up to create this stance.
  • Put your feet in an inverted “V” position.
  • Your hands should remain shoulder-width apart.
  • Make an effort to contact the ground with your heels.
  • Hold the posture for a short while.
Adho Mukha Svanasana can be practiced everyday.

2. Balasana (Child’s Pose)

The ideal pose to relieve stress from your neck, back, and shoulders are this one. It helps to relax the body and boost the sleep cycle.

Here’s how to perform it:

  • Sit on your heels while kneeling down on the mat.
  • Exhale, then inhale again while bending your upper body forward.
  • Allow your pelvis to rest on the heels while lowering your forehead.

3. Padahastasana (Standing forward bend)

Your upper body, including your spine, hamstrings, and back muscles, are all efficiently stretched as you bend forward. This lowers your stress level and encourages exercise.

Here’s how to perform it:

  • As you exhale, bend your upper body forward.
  • Keep your shoulders and neck relaxed while lowering your head.
  • If you’re just starting off, bend your knees a little.
  • Next to your feet, place your palms.
