How long should your child hold a posture?

Younger children may only want to stay for a few seconds before they're ready to move. Older children can stay longer. Adults usually hold a position for six breaths after first having moved in and out of it a few times. Ask your child to hold the position only as long as you feel she will be comfortable. If she starts to get squirmy, have her come out of the position.
