Rabbit Pose

 

It's spring and that leads me to one of my favorite poses-Rabbit (Sasangasana). Here's how to do it:

  1. Start on your knees (you can cushion them with a folded blanket). Place your forehead on your mat.
  2. Inhale as you reach back toward your feet. If you can, touch your heels, if not, then place them by your calves.
  3. Exhale as you bring your chin towards your chest and roll forward placing the crown of your head on your mat.
  4. Breathe normally as you raise your buttocks towards the ceiling. Maintain your chin on your chest.
  5. Stay in this position for 3-5 breaths. Release the buttocks towards your heels.

Follow this pose with Child's Pose.

Rabbit Pose helps to lengthen the spine and stretch the back, arms, and shoulders while stimulating the immune and endocrine systems.
