During yoga practice we often practice Extended Child's Pose. It is a great pose for rest and breath during yoga practice. Child's pose is also good for stretching our backs.
Extended child's pose adds arms extended out in front. This creates a long arms stretch and opens the space under our shoulders, our armpits.
Add some deep breath to your child's pose and see how much your back expands with your breath.
