Child’s Pose – Sideways Reach

  • HOW: Begin on your hands and knees. Push back into a child’s pose, round your back within your tolerance. Focus on bringing your butt as far back as possible, ideally, your butt will touch your heels. From this position reach your arms over to one side without shifting your body weight to that side.
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in the low back and the back of your hips. While stretching towards one side, you will feel the stretch on the opposite side that you are reaching to, from the shoulder down to your hip.
  • COMPENSATION: Avoid leaning your weight to the side you are reaching towards.
