Yoga Childs Pose

This yoga pose is very simple yet calming pose which we can do in bed too. It is an excellent yoga exercise for those suffering from back pain as it’s stretches and relaxes the spine. It also stretches and strengthens the muscle of hips, thighs and ankles. Pregnant women and those suffering from high blood pressure should avoid doing Balasana.
