It has been a while since we shared a kids yoga pose, so this week we present theDeer Pose from our winter workbook. This pose is a variation of the Warrior I pose. Deers are elusive, know how to listen, tread lightly and dash away when danger approaches. In the Deer Pose, think to yourself, I tread lightly with care.

Pose:Deer Pose
Ages: All ages
Mantra: I tread lightly with care

Learn how to do the Deer Pose, written for kids!

How to:

  1. Stand with your legs together. Take a big step back with one foot. Breathe evenly and calmly.

  2. Take a deep breath in. As you breathe out, bend your front knee so that it comes directly over your ankle in a straight line.

  3. Press your weight through your back heel. Make sure your heel stays planted on the ground. If you find it difficult to balance, take a wider stance.

  4. Take a deep breath and reach up with your arms, spreading your fingers apart like deer antlers.

  5. Hold the pose, taking deep breaths. You are powerful and poised.

  6. Repeat with the other leg forward.

Optional Activity:

To walk like a deer, step into the pose with one foot forward. Then step the other foot forward making deer pose again. Move in a circle or along a path, being mindful of your gentle steps. If the walking variation feels too difficult, consider placing your hands on your hips.
