Mindful Mondays—Lion

The Guide

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

Step 2: Join kids and do Lion 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 calming, centered power you have inside.

Why is this activity great for kids?

Lion 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.
