Imagine that. The mountains tumble at the head. The head turns in cycles of acceleration. Bridges crumble like roaring lions. Does it look like a CGI movie? In fact, these are just scenes from a normal home with a child playing the lead role. Filled with drama, the children were also born acrobats. Yoga poses, for example, are natural poses for a child. In fact, simple yoga asanas seem to be ingrained in the human body.
If you are observing a baby, you will see a lot of toddler yoga. A sleeping baby inadvertently hits the “Chinmudra” where the thumb and forefinger touch. A six month old baby is frequently found on the back in Bhujangasana (cobra pose).
