The Child pose Step by Step
1. Begin in a kneeling position on the floor, with your big toes touching and your knees slightly wider than hip distance apart. Sit back on your heels either with your hands stretched out in front of you or resting on your thighs.
2. Inhale slowly and then as you exhale, slowly lower your torso down so that it is resting in between your thighs. Hold this position for as long as it feels comfortable for you (anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes).
3. While in the pose, focus on taking deep breaths and lengthening your spine, allowing your body to relax and soften into the pose with each exhale.
4. When finished, slowly come up by pressing into your palms or feet and gently lifting yourself back up to a kneeling position.
