Extended Side Angle Pose is a fun and calming yoga pose that kids of all ages benefit from!
It’s a great pose for space-themed yoga activities, including Blast Off. Pretend your hand is a rocket ship, and have it take off from your shoulder and fly overhead.
Begin in Mountain Pose.
Step your feet wide apart, and stretch your arms out to either side, palms facing down.
Turn one foot, so your toes are pointing out to the side.
Bend your knee on your leg with your toes pointed away from your body.
Gently lower your arm to rest on your thigh, and bring your other hand up to your shoulder.
Extend your hand from your shoulder up over your head, and gaze at your fingertips.
Hold this pose for a couple of breaths, then lower your hands and step your feet together.
Repeat on your opposite side.
