Child’s Pose - A Yoga Pose to Help Relieve Low Back Pain

Child’s pose

The Child’s pose is a beginner yoga pose that stretches your spine. It elongates and aligns your spine, which takes pressure off of your low back. The Child’s pose also helps stretch your hips, thighs and ankles.

  1. Begin by sitting on the floor on your knees and then spread your knees comfortably apart, while pressing your buttocks on your heels. If your hips are tight, you can keep your knees together. 
  2. Sit up straight, lengthen your spine and focus on your breathing, take slow and deep breaths. Slowly and gently bow forward and drape your torso between or on your thighs as you exhale.
  3. Extend your arms in front of you, palms down. Hold the pose for up to a minute or longer.
  4. To release the pose, use your hands to push your torso up from the floor or thighs and slowly sit back on your heels.

The Child’s pose can be done several times a day to help stretch your low back.

It is important to remember that yoga, just as any physical activity takes time to learn and become proficient. It is important to take it slow, understand your limitations, and make modifications as needed. We recommend that you speak to your primary care doctor before starting any new physical activity.
