Reclined Cobbler (Supta Baddha Konasanat) Variation with Blocks

Reclined Cobbler Pose (Supta Baddha Konasanat) or Reclined Bound Angle Pose, which some people call it, stretches the inner thighs, groin, and knees. It stimulates abdominal organs, improves circulation, and can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and menstruation symptoms.

In this variation of the pose we place blocks under the upper spine and head to help open the chest and front of the body.
