Bee's Breath: Will slow down breathing pattern and release tension. Cat Pose: Helps relieve any stress or aggression. Cloud Pose: This pose should be paired with advice about how to 'let things go', especially whatever is bothering us. Tree Pose: This balancing pose has a stabilizing effect. Child's Pose: Stretches lower back and hips, calms the central nervous system.

Children are very sensitive and any mental block can easily translate into physical actions. They tend to experience several emotions at once, which can eventually put down their energy levels. Here are 5 safe yoga poses that will help your child avoid meltdowns and mentally relax. You could also do these poses with your kids, making it a fun pass time that they might look forward to.

1. Bee’s Breath: This pose helps slow down the breathing pattern and release tension.
Instructions: Sit on your knees, inhale with your arms stretched back and exhale as you bend forward to touch your head to the floor.
2. Cat Pose: This pose will help relieve any stress or aggression.
Instructions: Get down on all fours with back straight. Then exhale as you arch your back outward, touching your chin to your chest. Come back to the neutral position as you inhale and repeat.
3. Cloud Pose: This pose should be paired with advice about how to ‘let things go’, especially whatever is bothering us.
Instructions: Sit down, fold your legs as you inhale and stretch them out as you exhale, lifting arms over your head.
4. Tree Pose: This balancing pose can help shift focus from the mind to the body and create a stabilizing effect.
Instructions: Stand up tall, spine straight. Find your balance, raise the leg foot and rest it on the inside of your right knee. Hold for a few seconds and switch feet.
5. Child’s Pose: This pose stretches the lower back and hips, which automatically calms the central nervous system.
Instructions: Kneel in a comfortable space. Sit back making sure your butt touches your heels. Now slowly bend forward and try to touch your forehead to the floor. You can stretch your arms out or tuck them beside your hips.

Honestly im kinda surprised someone who has seen soi much & been around for so long would post something so ignorant. Even kids who are developmentally normal & have amazing parents can get stressed out. Look at our world today. The things kids see, hear & are exposed to. The bullying & violence at school. The ads & all the other crap that makes them think they all have to look & act the same while also being perfect. To me its very obvious that exercise & yoga is a healthy way to de stress child or adult.

Totally disagree. There are pressures put on kids from a very young age in society today. My niece is 5 years old in kindergarten & has hours of homework a week. It's ridiculous.

They are more flexible & learn faster than adults. It isn't impossible, type kids doing yoga into you tube or kids & acrobatics.

Moving and changing schools or the addition of a new sibling or the loss of a pet or a bully at school are very stressful to children. It seems kinda silly to us as adults but in a child's world, small changes can be extremely significant if that becomes the most stressful thing they've had to deal with.
