How To Teach Yoga & Meditation For Children : Yoga On-The-Go For Kids


Hi, welcome to Expert Village. I am Sharon
Tessandori owner of Barefoot Works Yoga Studio located in Lexington, Kentucky. For this segment
we will explore what I call on the go movement meditation. In which you’re standing and you
could use this at work or at home, anytime you might need to find yourself just taking
some deep breaths or just gently stretch your body out. So we’ll start with the feel hip
distance wide and standing nice and tall. Your arms just rest to the sides or your legs
and with your inhale stretch your arms out to the sides and up over head. If it suits
you take your palms together and turn your gaze up and then exhale, circle your arms
to the sides and move your hands in front of your heart and then inhale, stretch the
arms back down lifting them high. Exhale, reach your arms out to the sides, bring your
chin parallel to the floor, hands back in front of your heart, inhale. Reaching the
arms down, stretching the arms up, exhale, bringing the chin forward circling the arms
to sides and moving the hands back in front your heart. You can continue that from anywhere
from 2 to 5 minutes just flowing and moving with your breath and the movement combining
with you. Once you’re finished just release your arms to the sides and you’re ready to
go forward with the rest of your day.
