This exercise allows you to open the hips and the low back along with the added length of the child’s pose.
To do this exercise you will need a mat. Start kneeling with your feet together and your knees apart and then allow your body to rest forward between your thighs. Take five to ten breaths in this position.
Things to think about
Often people enjoy the child’s pose with the knees apart because it allows more space in the hips and low back.
You can also take this opportunity to walk your hands farther forward in space to lengthen your spine. See how far you can reach.
