Yoga Benefits in a Toddler

Kyra is still young (37 months) to properly breathe through each poses and concentrate on her muscles, but I think she is ready for small sessions of it with my help.


She is interested so far in poses and wont run away even when the stretch gets a bit painful. I have been gentle and have started with some easy poses concentrating on weight bearing and spine health.


She did 9 poses for 5-10 counts, depending how challenging the pose was for her, and ended with cool down (not included in video)

1. Butterfly pose

2. Seated Twist

3. Cobra pose

4.Balancing table pose

5.Standing fold pose

6.Triangle pose

7.Tree pose

8.Bridge pose

9.Downward dog pose


Early Childhood Yoga Benefits include:

■ Builds physical strength by encouraging children to

use muscles in new ways

■ Children learn how to manipulate their bodies and

maximize their mobility

■ Develops co-ordination

■ Promotes body awareness

■ Improves internal health. Each posture not only

builds muscular strength but also massages

internal organs

■ Improves balance

■ Familiarizes younger children with concepts of

right and left.

■ Helps build self-esteem and confidence

■ Increases concentration and focus

■ Listening skills and the ability to focus the mind

and improves concentration and study skills

■ Is calming and reduces stress

■ Leads to better health and vitality


She did do poses for both sides right and left, for the sake of keeping this video short I have cut clips where you can see the poses better.
