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


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.


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.
