    This pose stretches the ankles, groin, and back torso. If your heels don't reach the floor, rest them on a folded blanket.

    This pose is more than a backbend; it opens the shoulders, chest, and thighs all at once.

  • Virasana (Hero Pose)

    Virasana is a balm for tired legs at the end of the day, as well as an alternative to Lotus for seated meditation.

    Eka Pada Rajakapotasana II (One-Legged King Pigeon Pose II)
