Urdhva Upavistha Konasana

Extended Butterfly Pose turns Cobbler Pose into a core strengthening kids yoga activity! Children strengthen their back and legs, as they stretch and grow their butterfly wings.

Some of our most popular kids yoga activities that incorporate Extended Butterfly Pose are Waiting for Wings and Build a Rainbow! Both are fun and easy ways to bring yoga into elementary schools, preschool, or yoga class.
