Reclining Butterfly Pose
Also called Cobbler Pose, this soothing stretch "works the pelvic muscles to then allow release," Dr. Bartos told POPSUGAR.
- Sit on the floor, bend both knees out to the sides, and bring the soles of your feet together.
- Slowly begin to round your spine toward your mat until your back is resting all the way to the ground.
- Draw awareness to keeping your feet together, and allow your knees to drop closer and closer toward your mat. Either keep your arms gently resting on the floor, palms facing, or with one hand on your belly and the other on your heart.
- Hold for at least five breaths.
