5 family-friendly yoga poses 

Below are five yoga poses that will help keep people of all ages relaxed and happy. 

 

While we are all stuck inside with limited activities to do, here are a few simple yoga poses that you can do with your friends and family. During these uncertain times, it is difficult to occupy our minds with any thoughts that are not negative. Treating your body well by doing the following poses is a great way to keep your mind off all the unanswered questions. Yoga is great for entertaining your children after their zoom school is over and they need to get their energy out, keeping peace of mind at the beginning of a busy day and great for stretching after a long day of staring at a computer. Yoga is fun for everyone and can help build up and strengthen the body.
