Hey there, yogi! Let’s get our bodies into a relaxing and stress-relieving pose today. It’s the Reclining Bound Angle Pose. Sounds elegant, doesn’t it? Perfect for beginners and it’ll be your mini-meditation for a bit more than 60 seconds.
Why should you give it a try? This lovely pose is amazing for improving circulation, easing menstrual cramps, soothing menopause symptoms, boosting digestion, and even helping with fertility. Now, if you’ve got any groin or knee injuries, just remember to use some support under your knees for this one. Safety first!
Getting into the Reclining Bound Angle Pose:
- Cozy Padding: Sit down and place a comfortable pad or cushion behind you.
- Start Simple: Initiate with the regular Bound Angle Pose.
- Lie Back and Relax: Breathe out, and gently lean back, using your hands for support, until you’re fully reclined on your comfy padding.
- Hip Shuffle: Give your hips a little lift, just so your lower back can stretch out. Settle your hips back down.
- Knee Position: Your knees should be wide open, like a book, with your feet’s soles having a chat in the middle. Let them be, don’t push. If you feel any discomfort, you can always slide a cushion or block under your thighs.
- Arm Rest: Place your arms on the ground, angled slightly away from your body – think of them making a V shape with your torso.
- Zen Time: Close your eyes and chill. Embrace the calm, and let the day’s worries melt away.
When you’re feeling refreshed and ready to move on, gently straighten your legs out and transition into a corpse pose. Just lie there, feeling all rejuvenated.
That’s the Reclining Bound Angle Pose for you! A great way to pamper yourself after a long day. Enjoy and namaste! 🧘♀️🌸
