The Child’s Pose (Balasana) is a simple and easy forward bending exercise. This makes it a suitable counterpose for backbend exercises like the Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana) and the Camel Pose (Ustrasana).

This posture is known as Savasana, which can be translated as “Corpse Pose” (sava = corpse, asana = pose). It’s the pose in which you can relax in between the exercises and at the end of a yoga session. Although the name might sound a bit creepy, lying in the Corpse Pose is very enjoyable and refreshing. To many practitioners, it’s the highlight of the yoga session.
I’ve found out that it’s also remarkably refreshing to relax in this pose for 10 – 20 minutes when coming home after work.
