Yoga Session With Kids
Are your kids becoming a couch potato during this quarantine period? It’s okay if they are demanding new snacks or if you are feeding them with the new snacks, but then should spend their energy otherwise it would develop a layer of fat on their body.
No, I am not turning into a parenting and traveller blogger into a nutritionist. But, as an adult we need to burn some calories throughout the day, so do our kids too.
If you are following this series, then you might know that I have participated in the AtoZ Blogging Challenge with #BlogChatterA2Z and the topic for this blogging challenge is the list of fun activities to do with your kids during the quarantine period.
We have come a long way and this is the second last alphabet of the series i.e., Y and Y for Yoga Sessions with Kids. I know I have included exercise as one of the activities in this series. But, yoga and exercise are two different things. And, moreover, you should need to know the basic asanas of Yoga as it has multiple benefits.
Why Yoga Session With Kids?
Earlier kids are used to busy with their homework, schools, and playing and now they don’t have to do these things until the lockdown is over, so why not teach them something different. Yoga isn’t a one-day activity like most of the exercises. If you want your kids to practice yoga and gain its benefits, then they need to do it consistently.
Material Required for the Yoga Session With Kids
If you know yoga perfectly then you just need a yoga mat to perform all the asanas. If you don’t know, there are a lot of YouTube tutorials that teach step by step Yoga Asanas that you can do with your kids.
How to do “Yoga Session With Kids”
Before starting away from the yoga asanas, tell them about the Yoga along with its history. Also, don’t forget to tell the benefits of Yoga to our mind and body. Because this might tempt them to follow it regularly.
Teach them the breathing techniques. One of the most known breathing techniques is to inhale the oxygen until the count of three and exhale it by making a buzzing sound like a bee. Let them repeat this breathing technique 3-5 times and let them identify the sensation when they repeat this activity.
Now, start with some of the basic poses like Cobra Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Frog/Squat Pose, Butterfly Yoga Pose, Puppy Pose, and Balancing Flamingo Pose. With every yoga pose, tell them their benefits and keep an eye on their moments if they are doing it correctly or not.
As we all know, Yoga enhances flexibility and also gives a much needed mental peace. I have also added meditation along with the yoga sessions to multiply its positive effects.
My Overall Experience
It was such a great activity to do it with kids and you can also invite other family members to participate as well. This will help to encourage the child and it can be a great habit that might be developed within your kids.
So, try out this activity with your kids too, and don’t forget to share the experience in the comment section below. If possible, you can also share the pictures of doing Yoga with your kids and tag me, @sneha_261013 on Instagram.
And stay tuned for the next yet last activity from the alphabet, ‘Z’! Can you guess it?
