The Healing Power of Child's Pose

Child's pose (balasana in Sanskrit), one of the more relaxing resting postures found in yoga class, offers more than just an opportunity for restful slumber and stretching. This simple yet therapeutic pose helps calm frazzled nerves while rebalancing nerves.

Lois Maple from OrthoCarolina Winston recommends child's pose as an excellent way for people with desk jobs to loosen tight hips and back muscles, stretch front thighs and ankles and ease tension in chest and shoulders - plus ease migraine, headaches or PMS symptoms.

Child's pose offers several additional advantages for relieving stress and anxiety; by blocking out external stimuli such as noise or stressors, child's pose helps you block them out, providing an instantaneous sense of peace within yourself and helping reduce anxiety - another reason this restorative posture is so beneficial to children of all ages.

Teach children how to rest here for several breaths or longer when feeling overwhelmed, which is an ideal position to help them settle before moving onto other poses or at bedtime when trying to settle down and drift off to sleep.

This simple pose offers another advantage: it forces us to explore different breathing techniques. Because your belly presses against your thighs, there's a gentle compression which encourages us to breathe into the space behind our hearts.

Child's pose is just one of the many yoga poses that can help bring healing and relief to both the mind and body. It's a reminder to take a moment for ourselves, to slow down, and tap into our inner peace. And while practicing yoga at home can be comforting, sometimes we crave a more luxurious and immersive experience.
