Yoga for children - Space

Description     More info

These yoga practices for children are designed for the whole family and are a perfect way to introduce the little ones to the art of Yoga. Through play, creativity and the experience of sharing, children begin to explore with their parents, or with friends, their imaginative capacity, movement and concentration. Most of the poses are in pairs, and that way they are more fun!

Hello We are here with you again to share a yoga practice with children

Here we have Lua And I know Cayetana So let's start today With a practice Well, very animated and a little bit crazy that it's space travel

then we are going to do some postures as we always use The other person for partner yoga to work a little bit more together but we can always do yoga ourselves

Also alone So let's start As always with a warm-up What is the sun salutation Let's start standing up To Start with our warm up what is the sun salutation Let's get a little bit if parallel and sing the sun salutation song which is sun sun, sun, greeting the sun, sun, sun, sun, sun, greeting the sun sun sun sun greeting the sun I salute You salute everything we salute our sun and now come on I stretch out my arms I lower my head Step backwards I do the snake I go backwards To the downward facing dog Breathe we breathe a little there Step forward Under the head I stretch my arms We have finished Okay then, waving to the sun Several times we can repeat it as many times as we want at home to warm up a little bit the body ok And from there We are ready for our practice as we have said we are going to travel to space

then to travel to space as that is so far away so far out of here the first thing we are going to need Is a rocket to take us there shot Past the sky, past the galaxy and over there let's see where we get to today So let's start squatting that would be We are in the spacecraft phase zero Or stopped okay so there we are Very very very very quiet, very quiet, head down to the knees

If we can do it and we don't go backwards we can hug each other's knees Still if we can just a little bit more we can sit down And bring our hands together and there in total silence We try to keep the balance a little bit And if we can't we keep our hands on the ground so that each one of us at home tries From here we are going to launch The rocket towards the sky will be ok so let's do a countdown from below And we start 10 9 8 7, let's throw out our arms 6 5 4 3, 2 1 And we jumped up like a flying rocket and tried again 1, 2 and 3 And we are going to try as many times as we need to at home by jumping very Way up like a rocket that shoots out of the sky

1 2 and 3 to see, but better still If we have someone to help us to carry The rocket as far up as possible then from here we're going to do it together 1, 2 and 3 and once again 1, 2 and of course Lua is a little bit too big for me because I'm a little bit too small

so it's not the same but when we have a difference in size is it worth father or mother or The big brother the little one that we can lift up and as always very careful not to throw excessively and and we are left behind Okay So once we have caught the rocket We land on the Moon Then the moon It is our position of the moon Which we have already done sometime I put myself a little bit further back And here we are going to put one arm on the floor With the other hand on the waist And the other leg goes up, backwards there

We try to keep a balance Ok we can keep one hand on the waist the other on the ground If we see that we can a little bit more let's see

I can help with something, there Great o Let's do what I'm going to do for a little while let me do the whole thing

Or we can do it this way too If we see that it costs us a little bit more With the knee on the ground And with one hand stretched upwards and like this We don't fall so much we have more More you go base to the ground if we see that we can a little bit more and we go upwards

and there we stretch, we stretch like the moon as if we want to grab the moon with our hand it's worth a little bit that feeling or we can do it in pairs one back to back and that way we can help each other but always the Balancing there we have to be careful because sometimes when we do it in pairs we pull each other

The moon and in the moon we have a tunnel Look you do the posture of the dog And here We get below there we are we stay refugees In the space tunnel To see What do we find without anyone seeing us, then we stay hidden there I stay here eternally The tunnel can relax a little bit and stay there

Great there then that helps me because I'm getting stretching my back and from there we're going to slowly come out of the tunnel Let's see the tunnel returns to its place I'm leaving here We meet A kind of house Very strange it is some kind of spaceship must be where they live The aliens or those who live there in space And that's how I'm going to get With the legs Leaning on the floor and you Lua lying on your face Face up ok And this house we had there the house Aliens was moving up and down like this, making some weird movements

it's going slow and we take advantage of it by moving our back and making little circles like this

up and down And there we are giving a massage Back to the person above to see the hair in the middle there

undo the circles a little bit well, try not to put your feet on the floor, try to put your feet on the floor a little bit more

On top of me Okay until they are left, there that the person at the top who is left Very very relaxed Mostly the same here If we take care of different sizes better the bigger person stays below and the smallest person on the top is ok And while we are with this strange alien house of volatile moving shapes A one two three alien appears 4 like four or five legs ok then from there let's get Lua turn around With his back to me Let's spread our legs To the maximum sideways no, bend down but forward And we shake hands there wait but you stretch like elbows there you don't see, well there a little bit more You're going backwards me And here as if we're trying to hold on there hugging each other

And the alien, uh, that had two heads, 20 arms, and so on

It moved from side to side and slowly Let's fly upwards with the back always in the round carefully In order not to hurt our back we always try to climb upwards Not too fast upwards we try to climb with our back rounded so that the vertebrae You have to take a little bit at a time like a sponge and be careful, ok So we were there on the Moon With the alien And there was the astronaut passing by and that's why she was looking to see what she could find in the space

And the astronaut was a huge thing just tiptoeing around like this ok Trying Practically not even stepping on the ground, how hard is that? then we try as if burning the ground to be as short as possible Without stepping on the ground on tiptoe And at the same time trying how to grab the air as there is no gravity in space So we try there As if the air was Thick and we want to grab in the air to trying to make there Balance without falling We are looking for each one of our movements is worth with the Feet trying not to almost touch the ground very de puntillitas me puntillitas and there moving trying to grasping space or the atmosphere because it's too dense okay and already once we get it We are going to rest and a little while there in the astronaut's posture that as there is no gravity So we have the feet flying upwards and even the arms So there we leave very relaxed The arms And the feet and we move a little bit the legs also Very slow There We try to make the arms As if they weighed as much as the legs Movements towards all sides crossing from one side to the other side And then we investigate a little bit of movement there that we can make up because the nice thing Or the nice thing about playing yoga Sometimes we can invent a lot of things, try things, invent postures

Okay And from there We're going to go little by little to sit down Because we found ourselves The star is worth For that we go to Sit facing this way One leg in the middle Stretched and the middle leg stretched out is here that's it and from here both of us with the outside hand go forward And with the inside hand Palm with palm facing there And there we help a little bit look, you try to look a little bit more towards me there

it's like we turn with our navel

To stick navel to navel with the other person next to us to form a star

there a little bit more And now the star to the other side Let's spin spin spin spin That we turn our backs and where is this hand here And there we stretch to the opposite side then we stretch a little bit at a time Towards the two different sides it's ok with this stretch What is One of many stars Millions of stars in the galaxy there we are And along with the star of the galaxy is all all all the planets Which would be formed like this Holding the knees tightly to the chest And with the head down Which seems silly but keep it there A little bit of balance it's not so easy because sometimes our chest goes a little bit backwards we try to keep the balance And if you see that the balance is going well we can move our arms a little bit more apart creating a Saturn that we have that ring around us and we try to stay there That if we can just a little bit more we're going to open our arms a little wider And if we go a little bit more we open our arms a little bit more Until when we can't go any further we turn to that side or else we go We drop all the way to the ground With the back supported We massage our back like this We make circles From side to side Stretching the arms And we're going to drop our knees to one side And the head turns to the opposite side then there we do Twisted planet a little bit twisted planet we are in space but if it helps us to stretch our back doing there a good twist Then we go to the other side We take the opportunity to breathe there The postures that are a little bit more than Rest is when we can bring More awareness to our breathing and from there slowly As Lua is Ok let's see if we can here Lua look come We put our feet together one foot and one foot we stretch upwards as if we walk with one foot towards the other and try to lean on me we do the candle posture Together See if you can can you get your hips off the floor, now I'm falling, there

One two and three now I'm trying there and slowly we go back to him Soil okay from here we're going to take a spacecraft Super powerful that's like the space throne then for that I'm going to lie down And Lua you are coming Here I did my shoulders The throne is worth From here Bend your knees a little bit waiting not your hands here no

the hand here your hands are trying to get your feet right Turn Knees stretches upward Look and adjust a little bit the butt there Careful to move around controlling a little bit you there on the move this normally at home we are going to do this With another person I always recommend all these More acrobatic postures we always do it with someone watching with someone as a helper it's ok so that If we're going to fall or we don't have good balance they can help us to get out of there Before here we are going to stay let's see you stretch your arms a little bit Lower back and even pulls the belly inward a little bit Let go, lower your arms and put the posture that you control there

without moving Okay and me slowly I'll grab your feet again and let's go down one and we are going to lower the other one Okay Slowly look back forward We shake hands There We create Like a milky way there between the two of them there stretching upward And putting the hands Palm to palm one this way another this way stretch the elbows a little bit more shoulders back there We tried there But you have to come to me because that's like a little house over here that's it and over here

through this milky way that we see through this space because the planets can pass the Stars, elements of space Okay And there we are slowly closing Let's move our shoulders a little bit and we are going to go Towards the relaxation posture Ok then you can lie down and rest with your hands facing upwards You relax your head and you leave there for a little while Stop your body Rest And feel the breath We are going to feel as if we were floating in space as there is no gravity and it's a feeling very joyful to be kind of floating is worth then that feeling that we close our eyes and like we're just going on still in our spaceship floating through space and we take a couple of deep breaths through the nose We release through the mouth and let The body totally relaxed Soft As if we were Very very very very very light paper and there You take the opportunity to rest for a couple of minutes Always We comment on the importance of relaxation after a yoga practice is what is going to keep us The body the mind And our emotions active and ready to go on Our day and if we also share it with our friends and parents Etcetera it feels much more beautiful and fun so slowly I'm going to ask Lua that little by little Let the knees go bending Dropping to one side and little by little you sit down Okay slowly the posture cross-legged To finish for today All these postures that we do and the practices that we propose to do with the children at House You are going to have to be with him with the television or with the DVD or with the cell phone giving him the Play and stop because It is necessary to stop a little bit to take the time to adjust how we do the postures especially if we are Doing it with more than 2 people Then Take your time And as we say if you have a third person for some more postures Complicated or acrobatics as we always recommend to have a third person for some Be careful And I'm just going to say goodbye to you, Lua and I are going to say goodbye We close with our song of the Little Light that illuminates from the inside out just as yours does From the inside out illuminates my light My little light greets your little light your little light your little light your little light My little light greets your little light Namaste Thank you
