Tickle Toes is a very energizing pose that allows you to let loose and be silly. Its element is fire which promotes movement and action.
Anatomy of the Pose: Begin in mountain pose. Bring the arms up over head, reaching the fingers towards the ceiling. Inhale to lengthen, exhale to bend at the waist bringing the fingers to the toes. Have the kids tickle their toes while saying “tickle, tickle, tickle.” Saying the words in a fun, magical voice helps them to more easily remember the pose.
Chakras Most Affected: This pose is similar to forward fold which is a great way to activate the root chakra.
Benefits for Children: This pose is a great way to boost energy and de-stress. You can even adjust the pose to be more relaxing and just having the kids hang in a forward fold, letting all the tension fall out of the upper back, neck and shoulders.
