#WellnessWednesday: Reclining Butterfly
Posted by unfold-yoga
How to do it: Lay on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor and bring the inside edges of your feet together. Bring the soles of the feet to come together while opening the knees wide. If your knees don’t rest on the floor, used blankets, yoga blocks or some other support to support the legs so that your muscles can relax. Turning your palms up helps roll the shoulders and collarbones open.
- Increases blood circulation to the organs in the lower abdomen
- Stretches the inner thighs and groins if the feet are close to the body; opens the connective tissue of the hip joint if the feet are farther away
- Increases range of external rotation in the hips
- Calms the nervous system
Peace and love,
