We have all seen a happy baby holding its toes with its fingers swinging to and fro, side to side and enjoying its life as if it is the happiest part of the creation. In the final pose of Ananda Balasana the practitioner assumes this shape of a happy baby enjoying the pose to the optimum and hence the name. It is also called as blissful baby pose or the dead bug pose.
Ananda = happy
Bala = child
Asana = pose
This pose is a great hip opener and offers many health benefits to the practitioner. It has an enormous ability to calm your body and remove the stress from your body and also to keep you as happy as a baby.
