Sasangasana – Rabbit Pose

Well, it’s almost Easter so why not a little review of rabbit pose?

The first thing to do to is to come into child pose with the knees together. Allow the arms to come along the sides on the body or hold onto the heel. Form there, bring your forehead in as close as you comfortably can to your knees. Begin to lift the hips so that the crown of the head comes to the floor in front of the knees. Arms can stay down or they can interlace over the back. Think about how a rabbit’s spine is curved. you are trying to achieve that curve in the spine.

As always, follow what your body is telling you. Although this is a basic pose, it isn’t for everyone. If you have issues with your neck you need to be careful about putting weight on your head like this, especially when your neck is curved in this way.

You can support the head and/or knees with a folded blanket if that feels better.
