Balasana - Child Pose

Child pose – Balasana

1. Sit back on heels and open knees about hip width on a mat.

2. Bend forward by lowering upper body between thighs and bring forehead toward floor.

3. Stretch both arms in front of the body by facing palms down. Or simply kneel on the floor.

4. Touch your big toes together and sit on your heels, then separate your knees about as wide as your hips.

5. If you find it hard to touch the forehead to floor use a folded towel, a block or a blanket – and place head on the any one of these items of your choice.

6. If you find it difficult on calves and hamstrings, place a folded towel between calves and hamstrings.

7. Don’t forget to breath in and out few times.

Child’s pose is an active stretch that helps elongate the back. It’s also a great de-stressor before bed at the end of a long, exhausting day.
