With a bolster, blanket, strap and two blocks
Place a bolster lengthwise onto your mat. Layer 1–2 blankets widthwise at the top of the bolster. Sit on the ground at the base of the bolster, facing away from it. Widen a yoga strap into a large lasso and place it over your head and around your body. Bend your knees, bring the soles of your feet together into Baddha Konasana, letting your knees open wide. Hook the front part of the lasso around the pinky edges of your feet. Wiggle the back part of the lasso around your lower back (roughly your pant line). Tighten the lasso until you can feel gentle pressure (or as much as you want) on your hip flexors. Slide one block under each knee (optional) and then lie back onto your bolster. Sit up and readjust your strap pressure to your liking as needed. Fluff the blankets under your head to provide a lovely pillow, and then chill here for 5–10 minutes. Bonus: Cover your eyes with an eye pillow. Lavender scented is extra lovely.
