Yoga Tricks for Kids:
To calm down Teach your toddler to inhale deeply, then exhale “Mooo” (as a cow), “Bzzz” (bee), or “Baaahh” (sheep).
To get sleepy Ask your child to close his eyes and imagine he’s on a fluffy cloud floating in the sky or on an ice cube melting. He won’t even know he’s meditating and will be drifting off before you know it.
To improve mood Bring your kid into child’s pose by asking her to roll up in a ball facedown as if she were an egg. Cover with a blanket. Press your hands gently but firmly down her spine as you ask, “I wonder what my baby will look like?” Pretend she’s a dinosaur or a chick, or anything, really — just make a big fuss when she cracks a “claw” out from under the covers.
