Go figure, this is one of my favourite poses. It’s a resting, restorative pose. HA! In the classes I take, we usually spread our knees as wide as the mat which is a really easy hip opener. It’s supposed to be a heart opener too. You spread your arms wide and melt your heart to the mat. There’s something about your heart being higher than your head that is really relaxing too. Kind of like those anti-gravity chair things you hook your feet into and flip upside down they sell on the shopping channel.
