Floor Bow is a challenging and core strengthening kids yoga pose! Children strengthen their backs and improve posture, as they stretch into this fun shape.

Some of our favorite activities that incorporate Floor Bow are Making Shapes and How to Catch a Leprechaun! Both are fun and easy ways to bring yoga into elementary schools, preschool, or yoga class.

Step 1
Begin on your belly, with your hands by your body, palms facing up.

Step 2
Bend your knees, with your toes pointing towards the back of your head.

Step 3
Reach back with your hands, and hold onto your ankles.

Step 4
Lift your heels towards the ceiling, and your thighs away from the floor. This will lift your upper body off your mat.

Step 5
Gaze forward.

Step 6
Hold this position for a couple of breaths, then release your ankles and relax your body onto your mat.
