Happy Baby Pose (Ananda Balasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Happy Baby Pose

Happy Baby Pose is a grounding posture that stretches the inner thighs, groin, and hamstrings. Also known as Ananda Balasana in Sanskrit or  “Dead Bug Pose”, Happy Baby Pose creates space by opening up the chest, shoulders, and hips. Happy Baby Pose is known to relieve lower back pain, lengthen the spine, and improve heart rate. Energetically, Happy Baby Pose relieves stress and calms the mind. Happy Baby is a relaxing, beginner posture typically used at the end of practice before the final posture, Svanasana, or Corpse Pose.
