SUPTA BADDHA KONASANA
This is a neutralizing pose that soothes the nervous system, releases the lower back as well as the hips, and stretches out the thigh muscles. As you drop into the floor and surrender to the pose, all your internal organs and body systems are rebalanced and revitalized.
From the horizontal prone position, bend you knees and bring the soles of your feet together, letting your legs and knees splay to the sides.
Lay your arms by your sides with your palms facing up (or, if you prefer, rest your hands on your belly). Close your eyes.
- Your feet should be about one or two feet away from your groin.
- Scoop your tailbone under, drawing the front of the pelvis up toward your ribs.
- Let the valley of your pelvis sink into the earth.
- Drop your belly, drop your brain. Take a deep rest.
