Day 243- Child's Pose

This exercise is intended to be recuperative.  It is about allowing the breath to find its way to your low back, and to allow the change in the tissues to remain with each breath.

To do this exercise you will need a mat.  Start by kneeling on the floor and then allow your body to sit back on your heels and then to fold over your thighs.  Reach your hands out in front of your body and then breath.  Allow the breath to spread the myofascial tissues of your back.  Try 5-10 breaths in this position.

Things to think about
Release! Release! Release!  With each exhale allow your body to melt into the floor.  Feel the liquid nature of the fascia, as your bones are gently moving away from each other.

It is fun to try to breath into different parts of your back.  Is one part tighter than other?  Can you release it?
