One-Pose Wonder of the week: Supta BK

Ready for a bit of restorative yoga? Last week's One-Pose Wonder was more of a heat-building backbend (the wheel portion of it), this one is a passive backbend that you can hang out in for 10-15 minutes. Got 20? Even better. Wait til you feel the results from just ONE pose! (hence the name.) I especially like this at the end of the day, to transition into a more relaxing mode for evening. The great thing about restorative work is, well, that it's not really work - you get to lie there and allow the props to support you. And having the support of stuff like blankets and blocks allows you to stay in the posture for much longer, which gives things a chance to really open up and release. Here we go. Thanks to my Boston Terrier Rocco and my daughter Morgane for being my yoga models.

Supta Baddha Konasana with blanket

SBK is a lovely pose on its own, but the blanket just makes heavenly. Use a yoga blanket or towel to make a tight, fairly thick roll (as pictured, with Rocco showing you how it's done). You can adjust the height by unrolling part of it if needed.

Hope you'll report back, and let me know what other One-Pose Wonders you'd like to see. Namahhhhhhste.
