I love Child’s Pose. I suppose it’s not much of a workout, but it’s good to start with the basics.

Logistics:

Lay on the floor with your knees tucked into your chest. and your forehead on the floor. Arms pulled back at your sides, with your palms facing up.

Benefits: 

Gently stretches the neck, spine, and hips. Calms and centers the mind.

Try it:

Child’s Pose is a resting pose. Do it first thing in the morning and/or right before bed. Finish off a yoga workout with it, and move into it during your routine if you need a break.
