Welcome to the second post in our monthly Kids Love Yoga series!
Each month, we’ll feature a new yoga pose along with pictures of children from around the world practicing the pose.
Our most popular page is the list of kids yoga poses, so I thought it would be fun to share pictures of children practicing the various poses every month.
My daughter first starting practicing Boat Pose in the bath while singing “Row, row, row your boat” with her arms rowing her pretend boat. She seems to be able to balance on her buttocks better under water. We have also done this pose together too (see sample partner pictures below).
Sanskrit name: Navasana
- Strengthens the abdomen and spine.
- Invigorates the body.
- Helps relieve stress.
- Improves digestion.
- Helps build stamina.
You could pretend to be: a boat, ship, canoe, kayak, bowl, valley, or nest
Come to sitting with a tall spine and your legs bent. Lean back slightly, take your arms straight out parallel in front of you, balance on your buttocks, and lift your straightened legs to 45 degree angle in front of you. Keep a tall spine and tighten your belly. Then pretend to rock in the water like a boat.
