Step by Step
Kneel on the floor and sit back on your heels with knees apart,
about as wide as your hips ... toes together. Exhale and bring
your torso forward and down and place your forehead on the floor.
Lay your hands on the floor alongside your torso, palms up,
and release the fronts of your shoulders toward the floor. Feel
how the weight of the front shoulders pulls the shoulder blades

Balasana is a resting pose. Stay
anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes.
If you have difficulty sitting on
your heels in this pose, place a thickly folded blanket between
your back thighs and calves.
