Pause & Pose: Child's Pose

Pause & Pose: Child's Pose

Jessie James is demonstrating the child's pose today, a must-learn as we close out the work week. The simple stretch promotes full body relaxation and will help you to regain your inner focus. It also works as a chance to rest during a yoga class.

Child's Pose


Level 1

Benefits: Childs pose is a gentle stretch for your hips, thighs, and ankles. It's the perfect pose to go inward and breathe, relieving stress and anxiety; or to pause and recover, with a vinyasa flow.

Honest Tip: When you are in this pose, think about drawing your breath all the way down to the base or your tailbone. This encourages your lungs to work at their full capacity, giving your body much needed oxygen.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace.
