Restorative Pose of the month for Peace: Bent knee, Side Lying Pose

by Skila Ramirez, Author of YogaFit Restorative

 

Purpose: bent knees takes pressure off of the low back. Lying in this fetal position, we can feel safe and at ease. 

 

Basic Set Up: Using at least 3 pillows or blankets, place a small pillow under the waist and hip of he side you're lying in, then one pillow under the head, and third pillow between the knees. 

 

Pranayama: none. Try to listen to the subtle inflow and outflow of the breath. Observe as the inhalation moves towards the body, notice when the exhale emerges. 

 

Chakras: all

 

Doshas: all

 

Mudra: none

 

Mantra: Peace resides in me.
