- Another variation for the Happy Baby Pose is to let the hands be clasped under the knees.
- Just like with all yoga postures, you should make sure to perform the Happy Baby Pose correctly and take certain precautions to avoid injury or make an injury worse.
- Avoid this pose during pregnancy and if you have a knee injury.
- If you have a neck injury, you should make use of a thickly folded blanket to provide support to the head.
