September Pose of the Month

Shift is here. Whether it’s just climatically, and you’re feeling the cool shift in seasons with a somewhat stiff body as you’re embracing for the cold, or it’s something more personal like a total rerouting toward your right life, change can be hard. Keep going, though. You got this. And, if you need a little break along the way, take a child’s pose with open palms to welcome your new intentions.

Accessing Child’s Pose:

  • Sit on your heels with your big toes together to touch, and open your knees wide toward the outside of your mat or blanket
  • Hinge forward between your legs as you use your hands to crawl forward and low
  • Rest the center of your forehead on the earth
  • Internally rotate your arms so that your palms flip upward
  • If you have tight hips and your seat leaves your heels as you surrender forward, option to use a blanket between your back thighs and calves for added support

Benefits of Child’s Pose:

  • Stretches hips, thighs, and ankles
  • Stretches and soothes the spinal cord
  • Relieves stress and fatigue
  • Releases back and neck tension
  • Teaches surrender
