YOUTH YOGA TRIBE

THE LAST AIR BENDERS PRACTICE for YOUNG YOGIS

 

REMEMBER ALWAYS START YOUR PRACTICE NOTICING YOUR BREATH.

STOP TO THINK ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL AND HOW YOU HAVE THE POWER TO BE CALM AND AWARE AT THE SAME TIME.

MOVE WITH A BREATH INTO EVERY POSE.

OUR PRACTICE TODAY IS EASY TO TRAP A MIND STORM (when emotions are upsetting, uncontrollable like a snowglobe of thoughts), we want to settle our thoughts and we can do this with yoga…
