Hi guys, here I show you how to get Kids interested in a yoga class. Sometimes, we begin our classes with a fun yoga song called Namaste. The word Namaste means ” I bow to the Divine in you.” It is sometimes expressed as Namaskar or Namaskaram, a customary greeting when individuals meet or depart in Indian subcontinent. Namaste is spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest. This gesture is called Añjali Mudrā or Pranamasana.
Namaste or namaskar is used as a respectful form of greeting, acknowledging and welcoming a relative, guest or stranger. It is used with goodbyes as well. It is typically spoken and simultaneously performed with palms touching gesture, but it may also be spoken without acting it out or performed wordlessly; all three carry the same meaning. The song that I sing with my students is:
” Namaste everyone, Namaste everyone, Namaste to you;
Namaste everyone, Namaste everyone, Let your light shine through.”
