How to do the Child’s Pose Stretch

childs pose stretch
This is a stretch called child’s pose. It’s designed to stretch your low back. You can stretch the middle of your low back and each side of your low back as well doing this type of posture. It’s really good for people that have tight, low back, or if you have too much curve in your low back, I always recommend this. Too much curve in your low back is called hyperlordosis.

So what you need to do is you need to get down on the ground or you can do this on your bed as well. And you just lean back on your feet and you stretch your arms out in front of you like this. Holding the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds to get a really good stretch in your low back out of this. You’ll feel it in your side body as well. If you feel like your bum can’t quite reach your feet, use some pillows and put a pillow behind your legs. And if your head can’t quite reach the ground, just put a pillow right where your head would go. So it would look something like this. And again, just hold that stretch.

To get a better stretch for the side body, for example, if you wanted to stretch out the left side of your back a little bit more, all you need to do is turn to the right. And I feel a really nice stretch on my left side body. Again, you’re going to want to hold that stretch 20 to 30 seconds. If you want to stretch the other side, just go the opposite way. So I’m stretching my right side now and it feels really nice. I like to start the day and end the day doing this. It’s just a nice way to wind down for me, but you can do it any time of the day.
