The Lotus Pose is a wonderful calming pose that can work well for children any time of the day, even in the classroom. It allows your body to be held completely still for long periods of time. As the body is steadied, the mind becomes calm.
The Lotus Pose
Sit with your legs stretched out in front of the body. Carefully bend one leg at a time and place your foot on top of the opposite thigh with the sole facing up. Your knees should be able to touch the ground comfortably.
Now place hands in prayer pose with palms pressed together and sit tall with neck and spine long, but with relaxed shoulders.
Close your eyes and start to breath slowly. As you exhale through your nose relax your muscles into the pose. Relax the whole body.
