Childs Pose

Yoga Child Pose
  1. Start by kneeling on your hands and knees.
  2. Release your toes on the floor and separate your knees about hip width apart.
  3. As you exhale, slowly lower your buttocks towards your heels feeling the tailbone lengthen away from the back of your pelvis.
  4. As your torso folds over your thighs, lengthen the back of your neck before your forehead rests on the floor.
  5. Reach arms forward, about shoulder width apart, with your head resting on floor. Your neck should be relaxed, and your buttocks resting on your heels
    MODIFICATION:  – Lay your arms by the thighs with palms facing up and feel how the weight of your shoulders lightly spreads the shoulder blades.
  6. Take several slow breaths into the belly and lower your back as you rest here.
  7. Gently, bring the torso back upwards, rest for 5 seconds and repeat from step 1.
