Featured Yoga Posture April 2016: Reclining Butterfly Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana Variation)

Lie back on a bolster with a block under the far end to create an incline. 

Bend your knees and bring the soles of your feet together, allowing the legs to open. 

Relax the inner thighs and groin. 

To add some gentle assistance to the opening of the groin, use as strap in a wide circle and place it at the lower back, across the inner thighs and around your feet before you recline.

Bring some gentle spinal extension into the pose opening across the chest and at the front of the shoulders by moving your arms away from the body with palms facing up. 

Stay in the pose for 5 minutes to effectively target the deep connective tissues of the body and tap into the relaxation response.
