Savasana pose is probably the pose that is most frequently used during relaxation periods. If you plan to present a yoga session right before naptime, you could use this pose to foster calmness and help children fall asleep. In fact, it is quite common to see children (and even adults) fall asleep in this pose at the end of a yoga session. This pose is also frequently used for meditation or visualization. With children, savasana pose promotes muscle relaxation and slows their heart rate. What’s more, it soothes their nervous system and their mind. When you first introduce savasana pose, some children may become agitated. Know that this reaction is perfectly normal; it can be difficult for young children to stop and calm down. Give them time and provide them with many opportunities to practice. They will improve over time and come to really appreciate this relaxing pose.
