Some asanas for children and young people
Balasan It is a relaxing pose, which can be practiced between tiring postures to relax the body. To do this asana, kneel on the floor in such a way that your toes touch the floor and then separate your thighs. While exhaling, bring your torso between the legs and straighten the spine. Place your palms on the floor and let your shoulders lift the weight of your back. This will help in relaxing your mind along with gently stretching the entire body. This is one of the most useful exercises to help reduce back and neck pain.
It is also called ‘rabbit currency’. It has a very good calming effect, although it is necessary to know the correct modalities of asanas to get the maximum benefit from it. First of all sit in the posture of Vajrasana. While inhaling slowly raise the hands above your head and exhale while tilting the torso forward. You can bend your arms slightly to relax, but only do so when you’re in the final position. It strengthens the back muscles, relieves tension, relieves constipation and tones your pelvic muscles.
Willing seat –
It is also known as ‘Cat Pose’. This includes the feline stretch. To practice this, stand on your knees and hands in such a way that you look like a table. Take a deep breath and lift your spine while lifting your head. Hold it for 5 seconds. Slowly start exhaling while tilting your head forward and arching your back. The more slowly you do this, the more peaceful and therapeutic the experience is. Do this regularly to strengthen your spine, improve digestion and increase blood circulation.
It is also called mountain pose. This provides the same benefits as the mountain – perseverance, resistance and agility. This asana is an important part of ‘Surya Namaskar’. Sit on the floor with your legs extended. Move your right leg to the left thigh and vice versa, move the left leg to the right thigh, such that both your legs cross each other. Take a deep breath and place your hands over the head and join them in ‘Namaskar Mudra’. Hold this for about 30 seconds and repeat. This will help you improve body balance, relieve tension from the shoulders, strengthen the legs, and improve lung activity.
It restores the firm and dignified stance of a tree. To practice this, stand up straight with your arms down and straight. Bend your knee and place the other leg on your thigh. Legs should be straight. When you find your balance, breathe in and raise your arms. Bring your palms together and stay in this posture. Exhale slowly and do the same with the other leg. It makes you feel calm and brings back the balance. It stretches your body and improves concentration. People suffering from sciatica should do this asana under the guidance of an expert.
