Basic Yoga Poses : Yoga: Child Pose


I’m Linda Black. We’re going to go into child’s
pose now, to reflect and regenerate or re-energize the body. So on your knees, place the hands
on the floor, and you’re going to bring the knees as wide as is necessary for your torso
to comfortably be placed between the thighs. Stretch the arms out forward, and take the
hips all the way towards the heels. If you’d like, you could come up and place a block
between the heels and the hips, or a towel or something to open up the knee a little
bit, if you have knee issues and if you’re coming off of an injury. Child’s pose is great
to rejuvenate the body. Five minutes in pot child’s pose is like taking a half an hour
nap. As you breathe in deeply, breathe into the back body. The kidneys sit right about
the waistline, and you want to breathe into the kidneys. Adrenals sit right on top of
the kidneys, so you’re in fact, rejuvenating a much needed boost for those adrenal glands,
cause’ they’re often overworked. Ten continuous breaths in child’s pose. It’s a great break
during your workout; revive and re-energize. To come out, let’s just come onto the hands
and knees, and press back into downward facing dog for our next frame.
