Benefits: Reclined hero pose can seemΒ impossible if you have knee, back, or ankle problems. Once you add props to this pose it becomes accessible to most people. Sit on a block bolster or folded up blankets, lean back onto your forearms, and rest your head on a block. This version of the pose will stretch your quads, psoas, hip flexors, and abdominals. Use this pose for relief from menstrual cramps, or to counter intense workouts.

Honest Tip: This is intended to be a restorative pose, so add as many props as you need to make this comfortable enough to stay in it for 3-10 minutes.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace.
