International Day of Yoga

International Day of Yoga is celebrated on 21st of June every year.

United Nations (UN) recognises International Day of Yoga every year on 21st of June. This day provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the positive effects of yoga on body, mind, and soul.

Take this day as an opportunity to develop the habit of yoga in your child. Here are a few simple yoga asanas kids can do:

  1. Tadasana or Mountain pose
  2. Utkatasana or Chair pose
  3. Balasana or Child pose
  4. Anand Balasana or Happy Baby pose
  5. Bhujangasana or Cobra pose

You can also do pair yoga poses with your child:

  1. Partner Breathing exercise - carry out deep breathing exercise with your child. This will help you bond on a spiritual level.
  2. Partner Tree pose - this is a normal tree pose but just with you and your child holding hands.
  3. Baby Whale pose - this is a normal cobra pose but with your child on your back. You might want to try this only with very young kids.
  4. Double Downward-facing Dog pose (Adho mukha svanasana) - this is the same old downward-facing dog pose where your child does this pose and you do the same pose over your child.
  5. Double Easy pose - this is a normal easy pose with a twist. You need to first sit in this pose and then your child too sits in the sme pose but on your lap.

You can also check out our individual articles in the application on different yoga poses with their benefits. Explore the yoga poses under "Exercise" category.

Happy International Day of Yoga to you!
