Yoga Pose: Child's Pose

Child's pose

Child's pose

After an extended weekend, don’t you kind of just want to curl up in the fetal position rather than return to your desk and try to complete in 4 days what you should have done in 5?

Me too.

That’s why you may want to give this one a try today. This is child’s pose and it’s our recovery pose in yoga. We retreat here when we’re feeling dizzy and nauseated or sometimes just for a counter stretch to certain other back poses.

I like to lay my arms down alongside my body rather than out in front so that I’m in the smallest, safest little ball possible.

You may find me this way under my desk today.

  1. This is my favorite pose EVER. When the instructor says “child’s pose” my heart leaps for joy. Seriously.

    Actually this is a common sitting position for me just in life in general. Remember studying in Gambrell 411? Pretty sure I was permanently fixed to y’alls floor in this position.
