I hold all of my emotions in my hips, and Head-to-Knee Pose gives my hips and hamstrings what feels like a minimassage. Since I started practicing, this has been one of my favorite yoga poses.
- From Child's Pose, sit back on your bottom and bring both of your legs straight out in front of you.
- Bend your right knee and place the sole of your foot against your inner thigh, pulling your heel as close to your body as you can.
- Inhale to sit up tall, and exhale as you fold your torso over your left leg. Rest your hands on the floor on either side of your leg, place them on your shin, or wrap your hands around your left foot.
- Stay here for 10 breaths, sit up, and repeat this pose on the other side.
