We Love Yoga!
It’s so much fun and it’s really good for you. Yoga can help with coordination, and it makes your body flexible and strong. Yoga also helps your brain! When you do yoga, you stay quiet and focus on your breathing. This makes you feel calm and less stressed.
Before You Begin
1. Find some open space to practise yoga. Your backyard or lounge room would be perfect. 2. Make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes that let you move and stretch. 3. Lay down a yoga or gym mat.
Warrior II Pose
Stand in the middle of the mat. Jump your feet apart, one leg pointing forward with the knee bent and the other stretched out behind you. Slowly twist your torso until it’s facing the side. Stretch out your arms and keep them strong. Hold for 10 breaths.
Start on your hands and knees. Place your hands at the top of the mat, about a shoulder’s width apart. Step your feet back and lift your knees so that your body makes an ‘A’ shape. Lift your bottom into the air. Press into the floor with your hands and your feet. Hold for 10 breaths.
Stand in the middle of the mat. Balance yourself then slowly lift up your foot and rest it against your other knee. Keep your back straight and your head looking forward. Place your hands together in a ‘prayer’ pose in front of you or lift them up over your head. Hold for 10 breaths.
Kneel on the floor. Touch your big toes together and sit back on your heels. Carefully lay your body down so that your chest is resting on your thighs and your forehead is touching the mat. You can have your arms stretched out in front of you, or tucked behind. Hold for 10 breaths.
