2. Child Pose

Here you begin with a kneeling position, so your heels touch your backside. However, you need to open your knees so they align with your hips. Breathe in deeply and breathe out deeply, slowly but steadily lowering your chest down to touch your thighs and knees as you do so. At this point, your arms swing forward for a moment, then bring them back and let your palms face skyward as they rest next to your feet. At this point you can also let your forehead touch your mat if you like. Continuing to breathe deeply, keep the pose steady.
