Yoga Poses for Kids: Dancer Pose

Dancer Pose: I am Elegant

Dancer Pose is an excellent balance pose that helps us build stability and posture while stretching our hips and legs. While this pose might be challenging for kids, we find that kids will try over again and again to find their balance. It’s okay to topple over–we can keep trying together. Think of how dancers must practice their moves to get it right so it’s okay if you fall over or wobble–it’s all part of the dance!

Pose: Dancer Pose
Ages:Appropriate for kids who can balance on one leg. Or younger kids can use a wall, chair or table to help prop them up.
Mantra: I am elegant

How to:

  1. Stand tall in mountain pose.

  2. Shift your weight onto your left leg. Bend your right leg behind you, up toward your bum.

  3. Use your right hand to grab hold of your right ankle. If you feel wobbly, face a wall and use the wall for support.

  4. Take a deep breath in and extend your left arm out.

  5. Balance for a few seconds. Breathe in and out.

  6. Gently release the pose. Switch sides and repeat.

Additional Exercises with Kids:
