Baddha Konasana

Turtle Pose is a fun and animal-themed yoga pose that kids of all ages enjoy! For animal-themed yoga activities, you can find this turtle in Shark in the Dark and Mouse’s First Spring.

Use Turtle Pose to stretch legs, calm the mind, and improve circulation. Children will also increase their flexibility, as they stretch to tuck into their turtle shell.

Step 1
Sit with your legs stretched straight in front of you.

Step 2
Place your feet flat, and slide your feet closer to your body so your knees are bent.

Step 3
Allow your knees to fall open, and slide your hands under your ankles. Lean forward into your turtle shell!

Step 4
Hold this pose for a couple of breaths.

Step 5
Slowly sit up, bring your knees back together, then straighten your legs in front of you.
