This week we’re focusing on the simple and grounding child’s pose.
Anytime you feel overwhelmed or stressed, child’s pose is always here for you. It is a very calming and secure pose.
Assume the position: Sit on your heels, spread your knees wide, and gently roll your body forward on the ground in front of you. Rest your arms beside your body. Focus on your breath.
Optional modification: You can choose to place a blanket beneath your knees and place a block or solid pillow under your forehead. This will make the pose a bit easier and allow you to relax.
Hold this pose (and keep breathing!) for 1 to 3 minutes.
You can also follow my audio direction below.
*Always check with your doctor before trying a new workout. Avoid this pose if you are pregnant, have a knee injury, or digestive trouble.
Oh, by the way
PS: Would you donate your days off to a colleague with a sick child? A new law passed in France allows co-workers to support each other during this difficult time. So rad. Read more here.
