Child's pose is really important because it's the position you assume whenever you need a break
during a yoga class. If you ever feel fatigued, you don't have to wait for the teacher to call for a
break. Just move into Child's pose and rejoin the class when you're ready. It provides a gentle
stretch for the back, hips, thighs, and ankles, but does not challenge strength or balance.
Taking Child's pose is really up to your discretion, which happens to introduce one of yoga's best lessons: being attuned to the signals your body is giving and respecting them above any external directions.
