Star fish pose on your tummy  or back. In this pose Henry is hugging himself in star fish pose but you can rest your hands out to the side

Relaxation pose on your back or tummy is like star fish pose but legs aren’t so wide and arms are closer to your side.

Remember you can go anywhere in your imagination and you can make up any yoga pose you like and have fun.
