Promoting relaxation and decreasing symptoms tied to stress are the most common reasons that people practice this form of yoga.
1. Child’s Pose
Suggested props: 1 bolster or 2 folded blankets
Start by sitting on your heels with your knees bent and mat distance apart. Lean forward until your belly’s comfortably resting between your thighs.
Place a bolster or folded blanket between your thighs for extra support. Try to lay your forehead on the bolster while you extend your arms straight out in front or resting next to your body.
Relax as much as possible as you breathe and hold for five to 10 minutes.
