Baby Yoga Moves!

Mountain Pose

Mountain Pose

Stand up tall and straight. Make sure you are not arching your back. Breathe in deeply and exhale slowly. Focus on your breathing and posture. Hold this pose for 30-60 seconds.

Standing Forward Fold

Standing Forward Fold

From Mountain Pose, keeping a flat back, bend at the hips and fold forward. If you’re feeling cloudy, do a standing forward fold and the blood rushing to your brain will make you more clear-headed! Don’t forget to breathe deeply and hold for 30-60 seconds.

Plank Pose

Plank Pose

From standing forward fold, plant your hands down and step your feet back into plank pose. For more advanced yogis: practice plank pose lifting one foot off the ground and then the other! Keep your back as flat as you can. Breathe deeply and hold for 30-60 seconds. Holding this pose from your knees is a modified option.

Pushing up into downward dog

Pushing up into downward dog

From plank pose, straighten your arms and push back into downward dog. Bend your knees if your legs are tight. Breath deeply and hold for 30-60 seconds. Spread your hands/fingers wide and distribute your weight evenly throughout your palms and fingers.

Slowly come down and roll on to your back. Hug your knees to your chest, release and then lie flat on your back for 1-10 minutes and focus on your breathing. All done! Now you’re both relaxed AND energized!

Happy Baby Pose

Anyone (even babies!) can do yoga. The key is to start slowly and if anything hurts: don’t do it. And remember to breathe deeply!
