Child’s pose

This
is a very simple pose that’s adaptable for all levels. Kneel and
bring your chest down onto your thighs so your forehead touches the
floor, lengthening arms to either side or stacking them under the
forehead. Breath in slowly and let the ribs widen. As you exhale sink
the buttocks back towards the heels, stretching your back.

on your back, resting you head either on a pillow or on the ground.
Gently draw your knees into your chest, grabbing the outer edges of
your feet and sticking elbows inside knees. Pull on your feet lightly
as knees drop to each side of your torso.

Cat to cow

Starting
on all fours with hands under shoulders and knees under hips, drop
your belly and arch your spine, lifting your chest and lifting your
tailbone as you inhale. When you exhale, curve your spine into the
opposite position pressing the floor away, like an angry cat.

your palms on the mat or ground a bit wider than shoulder width,
tucking the toes as your lift hips high into the air. The chest

hips high to keep your soles on the ground and get the full stretch.
