"This pose supports the torso and gently stretches the spine," Salila Sukumaran, 500-YT, told POPSUGAR. Sukumaran said your muscles will "melt" in this pose, with any knots or tension you may be experiencing returning to normal alignment. "This pose is very beneficial in relieving anxiety and bringing a feeling of calm and peace." Sukumaran said you can do this pose as often as you'd like throughout the day and hold for as long as you'd like.
- Kneel on your mat with your knees hips-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 palms facing up, or try extending your arms out in front of you.
