Pose type: Supine pose
Targets: Back, hips, and hamstrings
Ananda Balasana (Uh-NUHN-duh Buh-LUH-suh-nuh)
When your body needs release, make Happy Baby your go-to. You are on your back, so it requires less physical effort than many poses. Plus, supine positions, especially this one, are restful and restorative. There are many reasons it can feel so good, as happy babies know!
a great stretch for the inner thighs, inner groins, hips, hamstrings—even the shoulders and chest are involved. It offers freedom in the back muscles, which is great after doing other poses, especially backbends and twists. When you take Happy Baby, the sacrum broadens. It gently stretches the inner groins and the back spine. It also calms the brain and helps relieve stress and fatigue. As you roll around side to side and back and forth in Happy Baby, it feels like you’re getting a great massage. It will give your back and hips some extra love that they need and crave. The great part is that it’s gentle enough for most people to enjoy, and luckily, it shows up often in all different types of yoga classes.
If you can’t easily hold your feet with your hands, try holding each foot with a yoga strap looped around the middle arch. Can also do a Half Happy Baby- guiding one leg at a time. You can also do from sitting on a chair or putting your legs up on a chair.
