Janu Sirsasana

Head-to-Knee is an excellent stretch for kids of all ages and abilities! Children stretch their legs, as they gently reach for their toes.

Some of our favorite yoga activities that use Head-to-Knee are Cowboy Days and The Snowy Day.

Step 1
Sit on your mat, with your legs straight in front of you.

Step 2
Bend your right knee, gently resting the bottom of your right foot on the inside of your left thigh.

Step 3
Lean forward into a comfortable stretch, bringing your upper body to rest on your upper left thigh.

Step 4
Hold onto your left foot, and hold this position for a couple of breaths.

Step 5
Slowly return to upright, then repeat with your opposite side.
