Yoga is good for you… Lion Pose

                                                   

Yoga is good for keeping our bodies and our minds healthy. Lion Pose is fun to practise! It’s a great pose for when we feel too much energy inside us and we don’t know quite what to do with it all….. then someone tells us to be still and quiet and we can’t. Lion Pose also exercises our face muscles!

How to do Lion Pose: Kneel on the floor and sit back on your heels. Press the palms of your hands into your knees, spreading out your fingers like claws. As you breathe in through your nose, open your mouth and try to stretch your tongue to your chin. Make your eyes really wide.  Breathe out through your  mouth and let out a loud ROAR!!!!

 

Look up at the sky…..a mindfulness activity.

Being healthy and happy means looking after how we feel inside too 😊                                              Being mindful is good for us and this means we need to have quiet time when we relax and maybe lie down on the grass and just stare at the sky 🌈🌤⭐🌛                                          Watch the clouds and spot different patterns.  Draw the clouds or just use your imagination to turn the different shapes into pictures in your mind…. ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️

Roll-a-Dice Exercise Fun!

We have been finding out that staying healthy will help us to feel happier and stronger! We need to do lots of exercise and drink plenty of water to keep our bodies and our brains working really well.

Here is a fun way to exercise… You will need some comfortable clothes, a safe place to move in, a dice in a shaker and some lovely cold water to drink. Do some stretching to warm up your muscles and then shake the dice. What number did you throw? I got a 5 so I need to touch my toes for 15 seconds… 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

Your turn now… Have fun and remember to drink plenty water!
