Balasana – Child’s pose

Balasana – Child’s Pose

Our favourite resting pose, an inwardly relaxing forward bend.

 Benefits:

  • Deep release for the lower spine and nervous systemBalasana
  • Stretches hips, thighs and ankles
  • Beneficial to the digestive system and organs, supporting elimination
  • Calms the nervous system, the mind and the energetic body
  • Helps relieve stress, anxiety and fatigue

Important points:.

  • Kneel on the floor with the toes touching separate the knees and sit the hips on your heels
  • As you exhale fold your torso down between the legs
  • Lengthen the tailbone backwards and the crown of the head forwards to feel the length through the spine
  • Take your arms down beside your body palms facing up, allowing to stretch through the shoulder blades
  • Rest your forehead on the floor or on a block
  • Try to keep the length of the neck as an extension of the spine
  • Lift your lower belly inward to protect your lower back
  • Guide the breath into the pelvis and lower back to release any tensions, feel the lower back filling up with air and opening towards the sky
  • Variations
    • Allow the arms to extend forward in front of you, walking your fingertips forward while keeping your shoulders away from your ears
    • Hands folded under the forehead

Contraindications/caution:

  • Knee injuries
  • Pregnancy

Another one of my most favourite pose, I feel so nurtured and nourished, safe and protected in this asana.

Dance in the peace and bask in the bliss… Pink love and light
