To perform this Asana:

  • First bend your knees and sit keeping your hips on your heels.
  • Then, with your hands by your sides or stretched out in front of you, rest your head on the mat.
  • Hold the position while gently breathing and relax.

Child pose is not only great for stretching your spine but it also works wonders for your glutes, hamstrings, neck, and shoulder area.
