Day 13 of IDJSIJ Challenge – Yet Another Way To Do Jack Shit – Reclined Cobbler/Butterfly Pose
A busy family weekend calls for a quick post, and A LOT of effort when it comes to finding time and space to staying in practice. That will have to take place after the kids are in bed. In the meantime, I had Aria take the picture of the relaxation pose I plan to do as soon as she is off to sleep.
This is another restorative pose that suits some people well, and others not at all. It just depends on what feels good in your body. The soles of the feet come together, and the knees open wide and rest on blocks or folded blankets. Unless you have super open hips and think sitting around in a full straddle is easy and fun, the knees should be propped for a 20 minute relaxation pose. Without the props, this pose makes for a nice stretch, but will be difficult to hold and relax into for a length of time. Test out how close the feet should be to your body for you to enjoy the pose. Then settle in and relax. That’s how I plan to end my night.
