Extended Child’s Pose stretches the lat muscles of the back, the front of the thighs, front of both feet, backside, and front of the legs. This version of the Child’s Pose is more active than the resting variation, where both arms are at your sides with palms facing up.
The Extended Child’s Pose can be used as an active stretch between poses.
