Angeles here to show you some yoga poses

00:00:10,110 –> 00:00:12,870
that kids will love now for kids it’s

5
00:00:12,870 –> 00:00:14,250
really refreshing because it’s not

6
00:00:14,250 –> 00:00:18,119
really about getting a smaller waist and

7
00:00:18,119 –> 00:00:20,279
they also have plenty of flexibility the

8
00:00:20,279 –> 00:00:22,230
main thing that kids are into is having

9
00:00:22,230 –> 00:00:24,060
fun they want to get down on the ground

10
00:00:24,060 –> 00:00:26,220
they want to get a little dirty and they

11
00:00:26,220 –> 00:00:27,990
love the poses that are named after

12
00:00:27,990 –> 00:00:30,750
animals so with that in mind we’re gonna

13
00:00:30,750 –> 00:00:33,930
start with our famous down dog for down

14
00:00:33,930 –> 00:00:36,180
dog you’re going to start by coming in

15
00:00:36,180 –> 00:00:37,050
to all fours

16
00:00:37,050 –> 00:00:38,640
having the hand’s underneath the

17
00:00:38,640 –> 00:00:40,739
shoulders and the knees run underneath

18
00:00:40,739 –> 00:00:44,010
the hips from here you’re going to take

19
00:00:44,010 –> 00:00:47,489
a huge breath to prepare exhale flip the

20
00:00:47,489 –> 00:00:51,449
toes under and carry the butt up to the

21
00:00:51,449 –> 00:00:56,010
sky now down dog is a position that

22
00:00:56,010 –> 00:00:58,890
they’re welcome to play with a little

23
00:00:58,890 –> 00:01:02,969
bit you can walk the dog so kind of

24
00:01:02,969 –> 00:01:05,220
bringing the knees in to the face one at

25
00:01:05,220 –> 00:01:10,580
a time and then just have breathing here

26
00:01:10,580 –> 00:01:16,259
maybe a few cycles in and out stretching

27
00:01:16,259 –> 00:01:19,140
the spine and using all four supports to

28
00:01:19,140 –> 00:01:22,439
grow it taller towards the ceiling now

29
00:01:22,439 –> 00:01:23,670
just the fact that you’re sticking your

30
00:01:23,670 –> 00:01:25,890
butt up in the air is a great time for

31
00:01:25,890 –> 00:01:31,979
most kids and exhale slowly come down on

32
00:01:31,979 –> 00:01:35,310
to the knees to come out of it another

33
00:01:35,310 –> 00:01:37,530
favorite for kids is definitely cobra

34
00:01:37,530 –> 00:01:39,060
pose because they can add sound effects

35
00:01:39,060 –> 00:01:42,780

36
00:01:42,780 –> 00:01:46,920
