See below for steps on how to do the puppy pose, and why it's good.
Hay bale optional :)
Come to all fours on your hands and knees.
Keep your hips lifted over your knees and walk your hands forward to lower your chest.
Lower your forehead to the ground and let your neck relax.
Spend a few moments in puppy pose.
Make puppy noises while in puppy pose.
Wag your puppy tail left and right.
Ask children to stay in puppy pose for an extended period. Have them use this time to manage their emotions and feelings, and to be in the moment.
Why / Benefits:
Extends the spine, a wonderful counterpose to our spine being shortened from sitting too much.
Increases flexibility in shoulders, chest, and hips.
Calms the mind.
Activates the stomach muscles; great for aiding digestive issues.
