When you start a new year it can be overwhelming, you never know what may be around the corner, and it’s no different for kids. If kids have had long lazy holidays where not much was done, this can damage their self esteem. There are five yoga poses that can be done while repeating a mantra to help raise their self esteem. Being kind to others is uplifting for all, you can have your child form a yoga pose, and repeat that they are kind to all, for example.
- Going back to school can be a challenging period for some children, and they have to quickly adapt to new circumstances.
- Yoga and positive affirmations can help children smoothly adapt to returning to school.
- The easy pose involves the children laying down on that mat with their legs crossed and repeating that they are kind to all.
“After you’ve gone through the pose sequence, have a discussion about how they are feeling about the transition back to school and the start of a new year. Then shift to setting their intentions and goals for the upcoming year.”
