1. Practice your poses in an area that's clear of sharp points and tripping hazards.
2. Always do yoga barefoot on a mat, a rug, or grass to prevent slipping and to soften falls.
3. Make sure both you and your child stay within your comfort level during stretches. Rest when you need to, and stop if you feel any pain.
