Salutation Seal is usually performed at the end of a yoga class, as we say “namaste” to each other. Several of our Teaching Tools end with this pose, to help signify a calm ending to the activity.
Sometimes in classrooms it is easier to have children stand for this pose, though often they are seated for it. You can easily have children sit or stand – it is totally up to you and the space you are working with!
There are many explanations for the word namaste. One of our favorite ways to explain namaste to children is, “everything good and happy inside of me, sees everything good and happy inside of you.”
Stand tall, with your feet close together. If it is more comfortable, you may keep your feet a few inches apart.
Gently press your palms together, and straighten your back.
Hold this pose as you relax and breathe.
