Seated Wide Angle Forward Fold is performed with the legs stretched out wide in a V-shape position from seated. Upavista Konasana literally translates to seated angle pose from Sanskrit.
It is a wonderful posture that stretches the groins, inner thighs, and lower back and it helps prepare the body for hip opening and other forward folding postures.
The posture has a very calming effect on the mind and body and can help relieve stress and lower back tension. It is a great pose to do after standing postures, but can be performed to open the body for poses such as Standing Wide Leg Forward Fold, too.
There are many ways to modify this if your body feels tight in this position.
