|Lucia practices yoga – is a reiki master, reflexology and a trainee physiotherapy.
After attending a Yoga for kids workshop ran by Kate, I felt inspired.
My little girls wake up early, around 5.30am and we began to do yoga altogether. We had a box of stuffed toys, the cards and the living room carpet, sat down and started.
One of our sessions:
Sat on the carpet and began with the lotus position and did the Om sound 3 times, letting my girls hold the sound the longest (as indicated in the workshop), we the follow with flapping of butterfly wings, fly somewhere imaginable…
We may then become dragons and do dragon breathing through our noses, and think what colour, and type of dragon we are.
We may then take a stuffed toy and do the corresponding pose, each daughter taking it in turns (i.e. frog, camel, dog, cat, horse, lion). Then usually, instigated by 5 year old, we get the cards out and choose 4 to do our own salute to the sun. We then play or sing the Sun salutation song by Kiera Wiley.
And to end , we choose a card each, read what it says, do what the picture pose shows then rub our hands together over our eyes (to only see beauty today), another rub and place our hands on our throat (to only say kind words), another rub and place hands on heart (to only feel and give love).
Days vary, Always start on the carpet and the Om, sometimes we start with music, or hold the singing bowl, or count down shaking hands out and legs out, or my 5 year old has the ideas.
During the day, if my 5 year old gets frustrated we blow fire through our nose like a dragon, or roar like a lion and stick our tongues, or pretend to blow out 100 candles on a pretend birthday cake. The induced deep breathing from the puffing has an amazing effect on my girls.
Although it’s only 15 minutes a day, we don’t manage to do it everyday, but honestly when we do, the days have an added quality to them, so we aim to do 5 out of 7 days in the week. Before you know it you’ve done 12 minutes, and its time to draw the session to a close, and everyone is smiling and has an inner buzz going on.
So all I can say is go for it, it certainly adds something wonderful to their and our lives.
