Mindful Mondays—Cobra

The holiday season is full of joy and energy, but it can also feel like a lot, especially to young kids. As part of our December 2021 calendar of activities, we introduce Mindful Mondays—a series of sweet, mindful movement exercises for kids. We humbly draw inspiration from the yoga tradition and several marvelous teachers in our lives to bring these exercises to you and yours, and we hope they help you center during this magical time of year—and all year long! 

This week, try Cobra Pose to find a little more focus in the middle of everything!

The Guide

Step 1: Introduce Cobra pose to kids. Here's how:

Step 2: Join kids and do Cobra pose a few times together.

Step 3: Repeat the pose.
Repeat the pose each day in the morning, at bed time or at whatever times that work for you during the week to reinforce it with kids and enjoy the joyful impact of the pose. Return to it anytime that kids (or you) want to lean into the light, power and happiness you feel inside.

Why is this activity great for kids?

Cobra pose provides several benefits to both our bodies and our minds. Here's a bit more about the physical and mental benefits.

Just the practice of using the body, breath and mind to feel calmer, centered and more mindful helps kids learn to regulate their bodies and emotions and gives them tools for how to cope when life does become stressful later on.
