Heart-Opening Yoga Poses for Kids

In yoga, heart-opening occurs during backbends, shoulder stretches, and chest-opening. Many adults and, let's face it, kids too, spend multiple hours every day sitting at a computer or desk, which tends to cause the back to round. This slouched position does nothing for core strength. Poor posture can cause back pain, headaches and shallow breathing.

Benefits of heart-openers include:

-Stretches the entire front side of the body, while strengthening the back.
-Offsets fatigue and anxiety.
-Can improve concentration and focus.
-Aids those with respiratory disorders.

Try these heart-opening poses with your kids to start reaping the benefits:
