2. Extended Child's Pose (Utthita Balasana)

My personal favorite yoga pose for anxiety, Utthita Balasana stretches your spine, knees and hips, relieving tension in the whole body and helping your mind relax. Start in the tabletop position (on all fours), walk your palms a little bit forward and bring your big toes together. Bring your knees out to the edges of your mat, and send your sit bones back to touch your heels, creating space in the side body. Breathe in and, on the exhale, melt your upper body all the way down, relaxing the elbows and letting your forehead rest on the mat.
