Acting like a child is typically discouraged in the day-to-day grind of adult life. Not so in yoga, which is like a grown-up Chuck E. Cheese’s. But we’ll need you to put down that slice for a second and get into a kneeling position. Then lay your stomach on your thighs and put your head on the ground. Your arms can be lengthened in front of you or simply rest, fingers pointed behind, next to your legs. You should feel lengthening through the back and stretching in the hips, thighs, ankles, and feet. This is a resting position, so you can hold for 10 breaths or stay longer.
