This restful and relaxing posture can be held for as long as desired, making it an excellent starting point if you suffer from herniated discs, stenosis or osteoarthritis. If this position bothers your back in any way, try widening your knees or stacking fists so your shoulders have more room to unwind and relax; or alternatively try placing a rolled blanket under each knee for additional support or placing a block beneath your forehead for added support.

Another advantage of this pose is how it helps us discover our breath. While lying down and pressing against your thighs, your front ribcage becomes compressed and needs deeper lung opening in order to receive sufficient oxygen. Regular practice of this posture teaches us to notice our breathing in our torsos as we slowly release air around your ribs while breathing slowly, long and steady.
