Happy baby pose

I love Happy Baby pose! It makes me so happy to do it, and feels so good for my tight hips. However, I find it really uncomfortable unless I'm doing it on a soft surface - my spine is kind of bony and I can feel each vertebra rubbing on the floor.

Any suggestions? My old yoga teacher simply told me to use two mats. I bought a lovely new mat that is extra thick, and that seems to be helping. I just wanted to be sure that I'm not doing something wrong in this delightful pose!

Folks with pokey spines often have such issues in supine poses.

If two mats does not alleviate your issue you can try a folded blanket.

The pose you mention is relatively harmless.

Thank you - glad to hear that I'm not the only one with a 'pokey spine'!

I have the same issue with my pokey spine

I just fought through the pain and now my body is accustomed to it. Sometimes it comes back to hurt unexpectedly though

Maybe 2 mats are in order. Never bothered to try it.
