CHILDS POSE (Balasana)

Yoga - Catherine Tingey

CHILDS POSE

One of the most grounding and serene of poses, CHILDS POSE (Balasana) is a common way to begin a yoga class, or private session.

Feeling the forehead (Third Eye) on the mat and the chest over the thighs is a wonderfully simple way to bring attention inward and get started.

Childs Pose also fits nicely sequenced within a strong Vinyasa practice.

ALIGNMENT

Touch the big toes together and take the knees about hip width apart.

Sit back onto the heels and let the tailbone reach down.

Stretch the arms in front, palms down, or lay them by your side, palms up.

MODIFICATION

If students have kneeย or ankle problems/stiffness, adding a rolled up blanket between the buttocks and calves isย very helpful.
