Yoga for Kids: Animal Poses

Kids live in a world full of anxiety and pressure. From school assignments and chores to friend circles and extra curricular activities, we usually don’t think of these influences as stressful but for our kids, they often are.

The simplest way to deal with these stresses, for both adults and children, is deep breathing, pranayam and yoga. Learning techniques of relaxation at an early age boosts self-esteem and concentration and encourages body awareness. Yoga not only enhances mental strength, but also helps build the physique and improves flexibility.

Many yoga forms borrow from nature. Here we bring you animal-inspired yoga poses that children will enjoy, taught by wellness expert Namita Jain and featured on RobinAge.com.
