General review of all Yoga for Children sessions.

Hello We're here with you again to present one more yoga practice for kids today

Family to do at home or to do at school Or really wherever you want I'm here with Lua I am Cayetana And today I wanted to tell you that we are going to do a review of everything we have been doing, I don't know if you have been following it

Other videos of ours and if you haven't been following us, I recommend you to follow it

Because this way everything is making sense and we are going to do a little review of all the postures asanas that we have been doing We always do it with stories that's how it's going to attract the children the most right because we like it

A lot of storytelling and at the same time doing the yoga postures

And in this case we are going to do that little review of the animals that we have seen from the sea animals

land animals Some other monument some balancing postures But as always we are going to start with the warm up that we do every day which is our sun salutation And we get up I'm going to change Lua's place and Lua goes To look to this side to change a little bit

And let's start with our song Sun sun sun sun sun greeting sun sun sun sun sun sun sun greeting To the sun Sun sun sun sun greeting the sun I greet You salute We all salute our sun and now we do I stretch out my arms I lower my head Step backwards I do the snake I turn the dog upside down backwards And breathe we breathe Breathing Step forward Under the head I stretch my arms We have finished Very good Then this We can repeat it many times or just once or twice or three times as many times as we want

so let's do a little review With the basic asanas that are not useful to do later on

Other postures that we're going to use in the stories and stories will work

so let's get started With the dog upside down We do it we look we are going to do one in front of the other The posture of the dog that we also do in our sun salutation Resting the hands on the ground then more fun we can do the dog doing a pee-pee That's why we lift one leg up and we do a And we can bend the knee there a little bit and it helps us to stretch there too and slowly We go down When we finish the dog we can also go down with the knees to the ground And we always rest in the child's posture Or of the rock Or from the seed there Since we are in the position of the rock I'll take advantage of it For Lua to climb on top of me And stretch out as if we were here in this marvelous landscape sunbathing It sits that you can just sit there or it lays down

And slowly we come back Very good Also from this position What we do It's the seed no then we are a seed And little by little we are growing we are becoming a small bush As they water us And the sun rises A little more sun comes out again And rain The bush is growing again another little bit more sun and rain and the bush is getting a Bigger semi tree you get a little bit more sun and we look in front of it and it's already In a wonderful huge tree with branches stretched towards the sky and there we try to hold on a little bit is the posture of the tree But we make it linked More fun starting with the story from the seed that has become the bush and we end up in another one of the postures Favorites or main one that is the tree is ok from here We can link to another position that we do In the tree What is the butterfly that flutters around the flowers on the tree and it is by putting the feet together with the knees to the sides we can Fly like the butterfly And sing the song of the butterfly Okay we can sing it In Spanish What is fly butterfly fly butterfly fly butterfly Fly butterfly To fly Fly butterfly fly butterfly fly butterfly Fly butterfly To fly and now we are going to make it bring the antennas and it starts to smell all the flowers on the tree Butterfly eats butterfly eats butterfly Butterfly eater eat now Or we can make her sleep because she was a little bit tired And she goes to sleep she sleeps butterfly sleeps butterfly sleeps butterfly Sleeps butterfly Sleep now But then he gets up in the morning And stretches stretches butterfly stretches butterfly stretches butterfly stretches Butterfly Stretch This one costs us a little bit more Because it's balancing but it's okay if we let them roll backwards carefully

And also more fun because that's how we are With the back in the round doing a little bit of play here we can not Because we would not fall to the back side But at home you can Okay Then nature's postures we also have In the tree Our Flamenco Okay that the flamingo We do with one leg backwards And with the arms stretched out to the sides And there we fly and we can go Clapping like the wings of the flamingo And if you know what noise the flamingo makes you can make "Canta" The truth is that I don't know if flamenco makes that noise, but it's funny anyway

and we can make it up And from the flamenco Another tree animal that is what it is a little bit More complicated for children What is the eagle The golden eagle Because for that we have to cross one leg over the other one Trying to put your foot in there from behind is okay For that it helps me a lot to have my hands on my hips because if you I adjust myself without falling Or have someone to lean on And from there we can just stay if there's enough but if you can a little bit more we release to the person who in the end makes us more unbalanced And let's cross one arm over the other We cross our elbows and we grab our hands and there we go We try to keep there in balance We look at a fixed point It's always the most important thing to balance so that we don't lose it

To one side or the other And we let go and open the arms a little bit How it's a posture where we are there closing and crossing everything So then we need to Stretch When we do it to the side Then We do it the other way, but we always try to make sure that the positions are Balanced to one side and to the other side so that the body stays always the same and we are not fucking

more on one side than on the other is worth here From nature another position we have another basic asana is the cat the cat pose for that we have the hands and the knees resting on the floor I see on all fours and here on my back It's going down and when it goes down we take the opportunity to take a breath or to inhale Looking up is like compressing the spine and then the back goes up exhaling and we look up Towards the navel And we come back again lowering the back arching like a cat And then going up the back How can I make it more fun by making the sound of the cat Meow but when it goes up you can make the MUUU vacam sound And when it goes down we make meow, meow, meow, meow

And so you can throw yourself As long as you want in the cow-cat position Because it's a little bit weird because it's a cat and it's a cow

At the same time it's okay From here we return to rest for a moment in our child's position Why it's always important when we do a posture that we have stretched or compressed the spine then another What help to unzip that will help Create space between the vertebrae and in that case well in the cat we've been doing a lot of doing there and now we're going back to doing Close down to the child's posture From here Another position we can do together Lua and me I'm sure you've already made them great Our boat Okay let's try here Carrying one foot pushing towards the other To see And there another one there And we stretch Here the adults If they need to bend their knees a little bit because what we are trying to do is that the child is the one who is stretching, ok then as there is a difference in heights well in my case not so much perhaps But normally there will be as it is the adult or the older one to bend knees And the child stretches a little bit more he carries his shoulders back, take advantage of what a difference eh Slowly Okay and from there We release As we have been in the boat We have also the fish pose that I am going to do it Sideways To show you a little bit of how the head is doing then here I go down The same position that we have in the butterfly But we bring our hands under our buttocks And from there We push upwards And head backwards go a little bit over there bring or I'm going over here From there go a little more that way

I proved it and now you do it ok Lua because we can't both fit ok stay there lie down Lie down over there I'm going to show it for a moment and now Lua does it and so I can See how we correct so that the children can be careful especially with the neck is ok

But here we bring the hands towards the buttocks I'm up and look backwards And how do the fish swim in the river, they open and close their mouths

Thus Then when we do At home we can do it One head against the other then so you're looking at each other and it's more fun because you're looking at the fish face that you throw kisses to each other One to another Looking at you now Okay then you put your feet together You lie backwards And the head goes here well Ok this is important for the children to be careful with the neck That they don't put all the pressure on the head but well kids are very smart and they're not going to hurt themselves

For free But yes we are looking at it that they don't carry the neck or the head any further is just supporting The crown of the head On the ground, but only a support that does not push with the head

Towards the ground That's important Okay From here then Exit the posture and bde there as you are Take your hands Outward from the buttock and bring the knees to the chest Okay And then here I take advantage of To give him a little more massage Then I have My weight Downwards then there what I'm trying to do is Little by little Pressing on the shins And I help you relax there the more you relax the better okay there that's it

There Because we are helping to press the back a little bit more towards the ground and then We have more benefit there Now It's my turn Putting you on top of me Another position we have The shark we can do there Alone waiting I'm going to do it for a little while myself first

What is it with the arms backwards We intertwine like a shark's fin and we climb back up and there it's like we're swimming and we can put our teeth in and show them there

shark lengths okay and keep stretching upwards a little bit

And we can do it together, sit a little bit on your legs, sit a little bit on your legs, sit a little bit on your legs, sit a little bit on your legs, sit a little bit on your legs

There And over here Pull a little bit on my arms and see there

And look how good it is because when we do it with help See we are going to interlock wrists when we do it with help we always get a little bit more there How cool of course we have to be careful when we pull no and always of course

The child on top of the parent on the parent on top of the child or it depends on what size they are ok now slow down Lua, come out of there a little bit And when we do this posture maybe we remember that we come back to this one Because since we've just been there Stretching upwards doing a backwards extension then we have to go back Forward flexion And if we have that little bit of help that gives us a little massage, even better From here Linking with the sea theme Another posture that is the seahorse With the belly resting on the floor and here holding the ankles And bringing your shoulders back and you pull your legs up from there it's like you're swimming

If you can you rock there from back to front This exercise is very powerful because we are utilizing all of the Body strength to help lift us up and at the same time we are in a backward extension

When we do it with children Look at it like this, you stay there face down

I'm not going to lift it because now it's weighed already Pretty much for me but I'm going to demonstrate how we do it with children, okay you do the wheelie pose He grabs his ankles And we adults hold on okay And from there we can pull back a little bit and we can even Help to lift them up and rock them, but always be very careful that there is a grip Hands And the ankles at the same time Okay From here we go to Ending already with some positions of More relaxed or like We would ask for inverted The posture of the sail We like this one very much because we can do it also When we are in On a friend's birthday or when it's someone's birthday in the class And all the children are put in this posture that is the candle And the birthday boy blows it Okay Then here I climb upwards Careful I don't hit anything And we grab back there And from there from the sail that I grabbed The back from behind we can move on to the next one What is The plow There I'm getting everything up And from there we go down but If we are at In family we can, you show me a little plowing Okay We can play what we are driving A motorcycle, leave your hands there, I'll grab your arms

Then one gets in the back which is the child And you can grab And it can help to pull the arms a little bit

And at the same time Pushing there is but always very carefully that this would make the child to the father Ok and you see slowly you go down And we come back Head forward with legs crossed And to rest there in this cross-legged posture We relax the arms There That leaves all the weight of the body to the ground

Inhaling and exhaling you leave You fall as if it were melting Your body to the ground And so we are letting the body go little by little Get ready for that one Final part of the class we always try today when we're at home when we're at school

Or wherever we go to practice with children Change the energies Very often because from a very active game we move to a game Quieter from something very physical we can go Some more breathing So let's do a A little game with you for To close today's practice What is breathing From the square or geometric breathing the breathing of forms I'm going to take advantage that I have here these sticks of nature Okay and Lua you are here First I'm going to practice it a little bit with Lua but you can do it at home

When I I raise Upward the stick as if it were marking a line means inhale It means Take a breath Okay When I do like this It means that I stop breathing And when I lower the stick You mean that I exhale Okay So let's keep going All these steps and from there we create forms Then It starts like this I don't know if at home you may have seen it a lot but we had created a square A triangle And a ladder going up And who takes it down by elevator So it's a way to play Doing yoga From playing to breathing What we can do in groups one leads and the other one does the breathing or in pairs one in front of the other, it's ok

but let's go to Finish For today You lie down a little bit The savasana or relaxation posture The one we are going to leave The body Finally relaxed and connected to the ground wherever we are, we close our eyes

Eyes we try to let the breathing help us a little bit We try to relax a little bit and then we will understand how it is

Breathing connection And the feelings or emotions They're intimately connected so if we're a little bit tired or we're stressed or we're sad or anxious, so we can use the breath to help us to get better

help us to calm down and feel more joyful

or to feel calmer then good Let's try to find that connection and the more we understand the power of the relaxation at the end of the practice

The more we're going to be able to put It's practical in practice in our daily life Then you just take the opportunity to stay there for a couple of minutes or even 5 minutes

10 as many as you need, but with children it's usually Shorter relaxations And from there you go back little by little to Put you Sitting again but you should Drop to the side and we are always careful when we get up not to get up too much

Impetuously And now we close This is practice for today, which I hope has been a little bit useful to review what we have done

In other classes if you haven't seen them I recommend them 100%

What you should see them so you can practice all of this More and more every day and find the benefits Let's end with the song of the little light My little light greets your little light Your little light Your little light My little light greets your little light Namaste Thank you very much
