1. Lie prone on the floor.
Stretch your legs back, tops of the feet on the
floor. Spread your hands on the floor under your
shoulders. Hug the elbows back into your body.
Press the tops of the feet
and thighs and the pubis firmly into the floor.
3. On an inhalation, begin to straighten
the arms to lift the chest off the floor, going only
to the height at which you can maintain a connection
through your pubis to your legs. Press the tailbone
toward the pubis and lift the pubis toward the
navel. Narrow the hip points. Firm but don't harden
Firm the shoulder blades
against the back, puffing the side ribs forward.
Lift through the top of the sternum but avoid
pushing the front ribs forward, which only
hardens the lower back. Distribute the backbend
evenly throughout the entire spine.
Hold the pose anywhere from
15 to 30 seconds, breathing easily. Release back
to the floor with an exhalation.

Last summer, Danielle Pagano hurried to her favorite
yoga class feeling rushed but happy. Everything was
fine until it came time to relax into Balasana
(Child's Pose) just before the end of class. With
her head bowed and attention focused inward, Pagano,
a 33-year-old vice president of an international
investment company, began to cry. She spent the next
few minutes struggling to contain herself, and wrote
the experience off to exhaustion. When it happened

asana progression—she was stunned.
