Come to your knees, breathe deep, and relax in a long and luxurious Child's Pose. Keep your arms out in front of you and rest your forehead on your mat, or if it feels good, try something new and stretch your arms back behind you with your palms facing down, resting on the mat. This will offer a big stretch to tense and wound-up shoulders.
- From Standing Forward Bend, kneel on your mat with your knees hip-width-distance apart and your big toes touching behind you. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, lay your torso over your thighs.
- Try to lengthen your neck and spine by drawing your ribs away from your tailbone and the crown of your head away from your shoulders.
- Rest your arms beside your legs, with your arms extended out in front of you.
- Stay here for at least 10 deep breaths.
