The pose "The Leaf" comes from a series of fifteen poses with illustrations on the Radiant Yoga for All Kids website of Susan Kramer. Used with permission.
Start with this simple pose and add a few more. Practice poses so you can lead them without having to stop to read the next step.Children should remain quiet during yoga practice to maintain personal concentration.Invite children to breathe in to begin a pose, breathe out to finish a pose, and breathe evenly between poses.
