Is this the most relaxing position you can lie in?
A wonderful stretch that relaxes and energises.
In my book Relax in a minute I wrote about a yoga pose that some people claim gives you the equivalent of eight hours sleep in thirty seconds. Whilst I was never convinced by that particular claim - is it even possible? - it is a very relaxing stretch and worth a go.
Now though, in the quest for new ways to relax, I've found another great yoga position. It's called Supta Baddha Konasana.
Here's the thing, it's er, not very flattering. You could even call it the 'thrust in the air pose' but don't let that put you off as it is surprisingly relaxing. I'll spare you an image of me doing Supta Baddha Konasana - trust me, you really wouldn't want to see that - and just point to a picture of someone else doing it instead.
Why is it good?
- You can lie in it for ages.
- It doesn't actually require any effort.
- It's relaxing.
And according to the yogis…
- It frees up energy.
- It's good for the digestion.
- It quiets the mind.
- It makes you feel good.
