I am personally dyslexic and started practicing yoga just before my GCSE studies, I found the yoga really helped ground my thoughts and gave me a routine which positively impacted my revising.
“Yoga or yoga therapy and mindfulness and well-being practices can help our children to counter these stressors. Yoga practices allow children to easily change state, learning how to move into a place of peacefulness, balance and calm at will” says Manson.
- Stand up straight with your arms hanging gently at your sides.
- Shift your weight into your right leg.
- Place your left foot against your right calf or inner thigh (never on the knee!).
- Slowly lift your arms up into prayer position, or high above you like the branches of a tree.
- Keep your belly strong and your eyes focused ahead of you.
- Repeat on the other leg.
- Come onto all fours, with your hands directly under your shoulders you’re your knees under your hips. Your palms are pushed into the floor and your fingers are wide.
- Keep your feet parallel behind you.
- Breathe in and point your nose up to the sky, making a deep arch with your back and meowing like a kitty cat. Tuck your tummy, round your back, tuck your chin and moo like a cow.
Repeat as often as you like.
