Yoga for Kids : Yoga for Kids: Dead Bug Pose


Next we are going to be doing Dead Bug Pose
and this is also called Happy Baby but the kids prefer Dead Bug, I wonder why? So let’s
start by laying down on our backs, lay down on our backs. And let’s bring our knees in
and then let’s reach for the bottoms of our feet, shining our feet up towards the ceiling,
getting a nice stretch in our legs and we can even rock from side to side, can you rock
from side to side? No, well we can stay in the middle too and just get a nice stretch
and breathe and this is a pose too that babies are always coming into on their own and that
is why it is sometimes called Happy Baby. Kids are so flexible in this area of their
bodies so it is nice to encourage that flexibility by doing things that they are able to do.
