Reclining Hero Pose (Supta Virasana) (soup-tah veer-AHS-anna) ~This is an intermediate pose~ Note: You could also sit straight up and down with your tailbone rooted into the earth, or on a block, and the crown of your head lengthening towards the sky. Place your hands on your knees. This would be called Hero Pose (Virasana). If you have tender knees, sitting on a block would be a good option! Benefits: -Stretches the abdomen, thighs and deep hip flexors (psoas), knees, and ankles -Strengthens the arches -Relieves tired legs and menstrual pain -Improves digestion
