Balasana - child pose

Child pose – Balasana

This might be everybody’s favorite pose: Balasana – Child pose. It’s a resting pose, one you can go to during a strong vinyasa flow class the rejuvenate and to get your breath back again. I also like this yoga asana as a variation for savasana or as a pose to center myself after a strong heart opener or hip opener.

Getting into Balasana – Child pose

  • From downward facing dog bring your knees to the floor. Touch your big toes together and sink your bottom to your heels. Don’t worry if you can’t totally make it. If it hurts a lot, you can place a pillow between your calf muscles and your bottom.
  • Exhale and bring your torso on your thighs. If you have room separate your knees and bring your torso to the floor.
  • You can either stretch your arms forward or lay your hands on the floor alongside your torso with your palms facing up
  • Stay in the pose for 30 seconds up until a few minutes.

Benefits of Balasana – Child pose

  • Stretches the hips, the thighs, and ankles
  • Calms the brain and helps relieve stress
  • Rejuvenates
  • Relieves low back pain
