supine bound angle


supta baddha konasana

Supine bound angle is a simple posture which gently opens the hips and the shoulders.

Lying on your back, bend the knees and bring the bottoms of the feet together.

Let the knees open up wide. Inhale and slide the arms along the floor up over your head.

Place the palms together, crossing the thumbs. Breathe and hold for 4-8 breaths.

To release: exhale and gently release the arms and legs.

Elevate the knees and arms by placing bolsters or blankets underneath.

The arms can be placed alongside the body or the palms can lightly rest on the thighs.
