Yoga for Chronic Fatigue: Child’s Pose

I’ve posted before about some of my favourite yoga poses, and after getting especially deep into my practice over the holidays I’d like to share more!

Child’s pose, or Warrior’s pose, is one of my favourite, most relaxing, and stimulating poses.

There are several variations on the pose, but my favourite is to put your feet together behind your buttocks in a seated position, spread your knees apart from each other, and lean forward keeping your arms engaged. This stretches your hips, quads, back and neck, and allows energy to flow throughout your body.

If you are feeling exhausted or sore through the holiday season, I would recommend this pose!

Have you practices this pose before? What is another favourite of yours?

  1. i love child’s pose! i also like just sitting cross-legged (don’t know if it’s a “pose”) at the end of the class for the silent meditation.

    i do not like downward dog, as having my head upside down gives me a headache and heart palpitations!
