Happy Baby Pose

In Advice, Stress Relief on December 24, 2012 at 12:11 am

Humans sit majority of their day thus continually tightening muscles within the hips and legs. The pressure from sitting constantly results  in pain in these areas. Practicing the happy baby pose slowly releases the tension in the sacroiliac joints, which are in the pelvis.

To set up the pose, lie on the back. Then, stretch the legs up into the air while grabbing the soles of the feet or the back of the leg, whichever is more comfortable. Pull the legs apart to each respective side, pushing the knees as far down as possible. The benefits of this pose include hip opening, strengthening of the biceps, and stimulation of the spine and liver. Reaching a mark of 5 minutes in this pose will give the sit bones a break. Try it!
