Day 3 of the #wildlove30days yoga challenge!
Butterfly posture will always be a posture that I include in any practice, even if I practice for 10 minutes this would be in there somewhere! Did you know you can do this in a passive way lying in bed? Follow the guidance below but in a reclined position, it's so lovely to release the hips and lower back before bed. This is a posture that opens the hips but can be very therapeutic for reproductive health and menstruation. It also helps stimulate the root chakra (grounding) and aids digestion.
Butterfly Pose - Baddha Konasana
1. Starting from seated, let’s sit on cushions to create an anterior tilt of the pelvis, as if you were going to slip off the front of the cushion.
2. Bring the soles of the feet together and allow the knees to fall apart, you can have the heels close to the groin or further away, enjoy the variation each time you practice.
