Double boat pose

   

This pose is a wonderful way to connect to your partner. Boat pose strengthens our core muscles, gives us balance and stretches our legs. As with any balance pose, focus, breathe and move slowly, one step at a time. Remind each other you are here to help. It can be tempting to rock the boat or tip over, so breathe together and if you fall, roll and laugh then try again! We all feel the boat rocking from time to time, but the key is to breathe and focus till the water becomes calm again.

Sit up tall on your bottom facing one another with your knees bent, touching toes to toes and hold hands. 

Lift one foot up and press into your partners foot, sole to sole. Lifting your legs between your arms and balance. Then connect the other two feet together, lift and balance. 

Take a big breath in and draw your tummy towards your spine to activate your belly muscles and breathe out.

Now you are balancing with the help of your partner and if it feels ok for your body, you can straighten your legs a little more. Keep holding onto each other tightly. Be sure to stay afloat for as long as you can!

Talk to your partner and tell them when you are ready to come down. Together make the slow transition out of the pose, let go of your partners hands and let your feet release to the floor. You did it, double boat pose! 

Next time try different positions with your legs to create different kinds of boats. 

Kids Yoga Cornwall yogis always work as a team! Continue to encourage one another and do your very best.

Thank you! 

  
A big thank you to all the yogis tall and small that attended the Summer Series Saturday Club this August. 

Also a massive thank you to Dan and Ori at Breathe Health and Fitness. Their kindness and support has been amazing, we are so lucky to be able to use their wonderful studio in the heart of Truro to hold the Saturday clubs in.

We have had some wonderful adventures in the Breathe studio this summer, from going to a bug ball, searching for underwater treasure to going on jungle treks! We even had a rainy day yoga class, where the yogis completed yoga obstical challenges, to use up all that energy!!

On one lovely sunny day we took the class outside to a park. Practicing yoga outside is a great way to connect to the world around us and use our imaginations. It gives us time to breathe in the fresh air, connect to our bodies, welcome peace into our hearts and welcome new friends to share yoga with. Yoga in the park is a great way to play, it helps us connect to our playfulness and creativity.

This summer we also worked on relaxation. Relaxation for children can be difficult, but allowing them to explore relaxation in our Zen Den, and using different techniques like restorative yoga poses, props, eye pillows, music and guided imagery are just a few ways we can explore relaxation in our bodies and minds. Everyone needs to find their own way to relax and be themselves. Each of us has a deeply peaceful and calm space within us that we can tap into when we consciously connect. Take time to find that space within and share it with the world around you.

Kids Yoga Cornwall Saturday Club @Breathe will resume with a new 4 week series Autum Term. All dates, prices and info is shown on the website. Book in to guarantee a space.

We would love for your yogi to join us for some more amazing adventures!!

Namasté 

Namasté

Namasté means that we see the goodness in ourselves and recognise the goodness in each other. It is more than a pose, it’s a feeling. When we bring our hands to our hearts, we are reminded of the feelings of thankfulness for all the amazing things, people and places in our lives. Namasté is a very special way to see the light within one another and we always bring our hands to our hearts to recognise that beauty, love, peace and joy that lives within us!

So sit up tall and bring your hands together at your heart. Breathe into your body and be happy that you are your wonderful self!

We bring our hands to our head to remember to think good thoughts.

We bring our hands to our mouth to remember to say nice words.

We bring our hands to our hearts to remember to feel good feelings

Bow your head gently to your hands and say Namasté!

At the end of class we love to sing this little song:

I thank you for coming  to yoga today,

 Namasté!

I see the good in you and you see the good in me!

I thank you for coming to yoga today,

Namasté!
