The Child’s Posture

Kneel, then spread your knees apart, leaving your big toes together.

Bring your hands forward until your forehead is gently resting on the floor.

Perform in-depth, steady breaths in and out for about 3 to 5 breaths without getting distracted and focusing on your yoga practice.


Go from child pose to table pose, shoulders in line with wrists, and hips in knees.

Divide your weight equally between your hands and knees and relax your feet. Contract your abdominal muscles and lengthen your spine.

The gaze is directed towards your hands.

(Tip: If it bothers your knees, place a towel or the rolled edge of a yoga mat under the knees for extra support.)

The Cat

Press your hands to round your upper back. Do as if a string pulls the middle of your back to the ceiling.

Drop your head forward. And hug your chin to your chest, tucking your stomach in, pushing it against your spine.

The Cow

Release your stomach and lift your chest.

Without moving your hands, spread your shoulders. Lift your gaze to look forward or upward and dig your lower back.

Pull your shoulders away from the ears.

Alternate between the cat pose and the cow pose for two or three times.

The Dog Upside Down

Bring your hands forward slightly, curl your toes, and lift your hips into the downward dog pose.

Your legs can stay slightly bent, but your heels should touch the floor.

Distribute the pressure on all your fingers while pressing on the ground. At the same time, push your hips up.

Do this posture for 3 to 5 breaths.
