This restorative yoga pose provides gentle opening to the hips and chest, and is an excellent time to focus on breathing or to introduce a heart-opening meditation.

Lean bolster on stack of blankets or blocks. Place rolled blanket under each knee. Strap can be looped behind lower back, over insides of legs and around feet. This allows students to relax any effort to hold feet together. Sandbags may be placed on inner thighs to ground the legs. Make sure legs are fully supported, without a deep stretch, before placing sandbags.
