benefits: great for opening the groin area, increasing flexibility in the thighs, relaxation of the back.
Lie on your back, feet on the floor, legs together and knees bent. Allow your arms to rest palms up along side of the body. Allow the legs to open and the knees to gently relax downward. Allow your legs to relax as you breath. When you inhale lengthen the spine while keeping the shoulders down away form the ears. As you exhale allow your entire body to relax. Hold this pose for a minute. Gradually work up to 2 - 5 minutes of this relaxing pose.
For more of a stretch in the back and shoulders you can stretch your arms out over your head. Be gentle and listen to your body so you do not over stretch.
hint: if you feel strain in your thighs or just can not relax in this pose put a pillow under each outer thigh for your legs to rest on. Use as many pillows as you need. Use fewer or lower pillows as this pose becomes more comfortable.
