Day 4 of #wildlove30days
Pose: Childspose - Balasana
After a long week, let’s take rest in our child’s pose, a posture that offers protection and allows us to withdraw into ourselves to find peace, calm and clarity. Feeling a little overwhelmed, over stimulated or a little stressed this pose will help you create balance. Breathe and rest, wonderful as a resting pose for your favourite flow but also gorgeous as a Yin posture for 5-10 minutes.
Alignment: Starting from a table top position, part the knees to the width of the mat. Be mindful you can adapt this anyway, the knees can be closer, or wider. If you have discomfort within the knees try rolling a blanket and placing behind the crease of the knee, or elevate the chest with cushions. Soften through the weight of your pelvis and guide it back towards the heels. Soften your belly, chest and head. Feel free to use a cushion or block beneath the forehead, even the chest, if you want to rest into this with the principles of Yin, add support so you can relax for a long period of time, no force, no effort. Benefits: A calming posture that you can move into anytime of day. Opens the hips, releases the lower back and spine. Calms the heart and mind.
