Hip Opening Challenge- Day 1

Today is Day 1!

Child’s pose or balasana is a common pose but a good one! If you do a wide legged child’s pose you have room for your abdomen to come down and settle there as you focus on the stretch in your hips and groin. 

And the best part… not only are you stretching your hips you are giving your arms and the rest of your body a break! I LOVE child’s pose! 

Have you ever done it? If not give it a go! See below on how to get into this pose.

Child’s Pose

Child’s Pose (Balasana)

* Start in table top (on your hands and knees) and shift your hips back towards your heels with your arms stretched out in front of you as if you are reaching for something.

* Forehead is lightly placed on the ground and glutes resting on your heels

* Should feel a nice stretch in hips and groin; if hips are tight it may feel a little uncomfortable, but breath through it

Comment below and let me know how you felt during this pose.
