yoga for mamas: child’s pose


Child’s Pose (Balasana)

Child’s pose encourages the focus to turn inward as it stretches the hips, thighs, and ankles.  Knees remain open wide to make space for a growing belly, and arms can be extended in front of the body, stretching the upper back.  When the palms are turned upward, it allows the shoulders to soften and it’s a lovely sign of receptivity—opening to what is, and what is coming.
