Workout guide

Steps

1. Start in seated NaliniKIDS posture with your glutes at the edge of the chair — glutes across from the knees, knees in line with the ankles (forming a 90-degree angle)
2. Place your hands on the chair, underneath your shoulders, with your palms and fingertips turned out
3. Press your feet into the floor and lift your hips up off the chair
4. Walk your feet forward so that your glutes are off the chair
5. Shift your upper body back so your shoulders are behind your wrists
6. Bend your elbows straight back behind you, and then straighten them as you lower your body down and up (bend the elbows in slightly, toward each other)

Modification

If you have wrist or shoulder discomfort or pain:
– Check to make sure your set-up is correct (palms placed on the sides of your chair and elbows turned in)
– You may stay seated on your chair and continue the exercise without lifting and involving your hips (just leaning back and forth)

Reflect

You can customize the reflection prompts to meet the needs of your students and your time constraints. Create a unique workout experience every time you return to this lesson by choosing different prompts — each workout can reveal something new for students!
