Child’s Pose (Balasana)

Level: Beginner

Instructions: Kneel on the floor and sit on your heels.

-Spread your knees about hip-width apart and have big toes touching.

-With the pams facing down on the mat, extend the arms forward while releasing the front of shoulders towards the floor. Return to kneeling position with an inhalation.

-Keep in mind that child’s pose is a resting pose.
