Introduce a little bit of active movement with Cross the Midline! Increase core strength and cross-body coordination, while releasing extra energy. If students are a little restless, have them Cross the Midline for 30 seconds – start fast, then gradually slow them down to standing still and returning to their seats.
Begin in Mountain Pose.
Bend your arms, lift one leg, and bring your opposite elbow to touch your knee.
Lower your foot, and repeat with the opposite side.
Repeat a few times. This can be done quickly or slowly.
