Exercise 22 from Yoga Mindfulness Book

Tools: No prompts needed

Ages: 2+

Anaconda Pose or Bhujangasana

This pose is great for stretching the back and legs while opening the heart out to the world. It’s definitely a great pose to elevate mood.

When you are doing this pose, try to encourage your child to imagine the world of snakes. As a fun twist, you can make snake hisses as a breathing exercise.

  1. Lie on your belly with legs stretched out behind you.

  2. Place your palms beside your shoulders on the ground.

  3. Join your legs together, tightening them and imaging they are one (like a snake’s body).

  4. Inhale deeply. Press your palms downward and begin to lift your upper body. Gently lift your head, chest and shoulders off the ground.

  5. Look up at the ceiling and then straight ahead. Make sure your neck and arms remain straight.

  6. Take a few deep breaths and stay in the pose. Hiss like an Anaconda.
