Mini Fact:

• Now straighten
out the left leg, and lean
out over it with your
left hand. Reach down
to your ankle or calf,
and reach up with your
right hand. Both legs
are straight. You are in
triangle pose, or trichinasana.
• Child’s pose is sitting back on your feet
and stretching out your arms along the mat
in front of you. Close your eyes and relax.
• For seated twist pose, you cross your
right foot over your
left knee; your left leg
can be straight out or
bent in to go deeper.
Stretch your left arm
out straight along the
outside of your right
knee, while your right
hand is on the floor behind your right hip.
Turn your head to look over your right
shoulder. Now do the other side.
• Some yoga classes end with
shivasana. Lie on your back and close your
eyes. Allow your body to relax. Picture
every muscle of your body softening, and
pay attention to your breath going in and
out. When you are ready to return to your
day, roll onto your right side for a few
breaths before you sit up.

Yoga can
teach us
positive selfesteem, better
focus and
concentration,
and respect
for ourselves
and others.

Who practices yoga?

Yoga postures, or asanas (AH-sah-nahs),
are practiced by people of all ages all over the
world. People don’t have to be athletic or in
great shape to do yoga.
Practicing yoga helps relieve stress and
pain, improves circulation and digestion, and
improves balance and concentration.
Yoga is non-competitive and fun to learn
for kids and adults. Sometimes kids feel
pressure or stress about their schoolwork, their
friends or about competitive sports. They
might become too critical of themselves and
lose confidence.
Yoga can help;
there is no judgment
in doing a pose

while practicing.
Many experts believe there is a strong
connection between our mind and our body.
Emotions and worries can show up in our bodies
as tension, pain and upset stomachs. When we

feel sad, we can be more likely to get sick.
If we can learn to release the tension in the
body, the mind will relax, too.
In yoga, an instructor leads our thoughts
so that we become relaxed and focused.
Breathing connects the body to the mind and
helps create calmness.

Starting out

Beginning a yoga practice is easy.
• You need a clean floor and a mat. You
should also have plenty of room to stretch
and move.
• Wear comfortable clothes that move with
you and that don’t dig in when you bend.
• Have an empty stomach. Wait an hour
after eating to do yoga.

Let’s try it

• In warrior
pose, you step back
with the right foot
parallel to the back
of your mat. The
left knee is bent,
and you are low
over the floor.
Your left knee
points toward your left little toe. Your right leg
is straight. Your arms are outstretched, palms
down, and you are looking over your left hand.
This pose is good for making your legs and
core strong as it opens your chest. You can
also do this on the other side.

Eco Note
Malaysia’s last Sumatran
rhinoceros has died
in a wildlife reserve that had been its
sanctuary since 2014. The 25-year-old
female known as Iman died of cancer,
leaving only a small number of the
species still alive, mainly in Indonesia.
Malaysia’s last remaining male Sumatran
rhino died in May of this year. Experts
fear the entire species will go extinct
within decades if conservation efforts
are not expanded.
