A Sequence of Child's Pose Variations

Duration: 21 minutes

Emphasis:  We often use Child's Pose as a resting pose but in this class we'll explore some different variations including Sasangasana (Rabbit Pose) and Seated Yoga Seal Pose (Upavista Yoga Mudra), a variation of Melting Heart Pose, also known as Extended Puppy Pose (Uttana Shishosana) and a variation of Thread the Needle Pose with wide knees (Parsva Balasana). Please note that in Rabbit Pose and Seated Yoga Seal Pose the crown of the head is on the floor and, even though not much weight should be on the head, if you have any neck problems at all these poses are not recommended.

Props needed: A blanket for under your knees if required, a strap to help you reach your heels in Rabbit Pose if required and two blocks or a books to put your elbows on for the Extended Puppy Pose variation .

Mat direction: Short edge facing the screen.
