The goal is to try and become as comfortable as possible. This can be achieved in many ways. The most popular form of restorative childs pose is practiced by using a bolster. If one is not available, you can use a yoga block under your head and a blanket for support under your hips. Stay in this position for 5 – 7 minutes. Breathe deeply.
Find an empty space on a wall. Most practitioners place a folded blanket along the wall, where you will be laying, for lower back support. Lay down on your one side with your hips against the wall. Try and scoot as close as possible so your sit bones are touching the wall. Turn over onto your back and lift your legs up to lean straight against the wall. Make sure the blanket is folded up under your sacrum. Stay in this position for 5-7 minutes. Take slow deep breaths.
