Mark H i do this as part of my stretching cool down after activity. I hadn't read the instructions carefully and had just looked at the picture, what can I say, I am a man. Luckily I have been doing it the right way and generally at a minimum of 2 mins each time. Nice and relaxing, people often think I've fallen asleep and leave me alone after looking at me strangely, but you have to do strange things in public everyday... it keeps the crazy people guessing
Kneel on the floor. Touch your big toes together and sit on your heels, then separate your knees about as wide as your hips. lay your torso down between your thighs. Broaden your sacrum across the back of your pelvis and narrow your hip points toward the navel, so they nestle down onto the inner thighs. Lengthen your tailbone away from the back of the pelvis.
Child's Pose Challenge rules
- while you lift the base of your skull away from the back of your neck.
- Lay your hands on the floor alongside your torso, palms up, and release the fronts of your shoulders toward the floor. Feel how the weight of the front shoulders pulls the shoulder blades wide across your back
- Balasana is a resting pose. Stay anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes. Beginners can also use Balasana to get a taste of a deep forward bend, where the torso rests on the thighs. Stay in the pose from 1 to 3 minutes. To come up, first lengthen the front torso, and then with an inhalation lift from the tailbone as it presses down and into the pelvis.
