YOTD ~ Supta Baddha Konasana

**Reclining Bound Angel pose
Sanskrit ~ Supta Baddha Konasana**

This Restorative posture is great to do at the beginning or ending of a practice. My models (my lil ladies 😁) are using props to help open up the heart space, but this pose (asana) can be taken directly on back. The pillow is supported by blocks right underneath with the chakra blanket over top of the pillow. The models relax in this pose as they extend their arms out to rest on the floor. Their sacrum right at the bottom of surface or start of pillow and soles of the feet come to touch.
