Before you begin this session please read and listen to our Introduction to Yoga with We Be Kids. This session considers our feathered friends and some of the common features between them. We warm up the body to prepare ourselves for some bird inspired postures. Please be reminded to only do what feels comfortable and feel free to press pause whenever you need.

Whilst using this yoga resource to inspire learning, know you are helping you and your family's wellbeing:
1) Get Active - yoga may not be running a marathon but regular practice will reap many benefits to the physical and mental bodies. We aim to engage your body as you move through different postures.
2) Keep Learning - Much like us, our feathered friends have much in common with each other and also certain defining features. If you have the chance to, then take a look at the RSPB website to learn about the birds you see around you in the UK.
3) Be Mindful - Take the opportunity throughout this practice simply to notice. Notice how you are breathing - fast/slow, when does it change? Notice how your body feels in the postures - are any comfortable, and which less so? It's not a case of judging yourself either positively or negatively but attempting just to see yourself as you are exactly as you are practicing.
4) Practice Kindness- Yoga is a practice that is to be built up over time and practiced with a keen inner ear listening to our bodies every single time however yoga can also be riddled with wanting to make the 'pose'. Be sure that in every practice you listen keenly to how your body is feeling and practice with kindness. In yoga only ever practice with kindness to yourself - EVERY practice is different and our bodies will feel the postures differently every time. Yoga should never hurt. Look after yourself - there is only one of you.
5) Think Community - Practice this session with your community at home and spread the word online.
