Ananda Balasana ~ In a supine position (on your back), bring both knees to your belly. Grab outer blades of your feet and open the knees a little wider than your belly then pull them closer to your armpits. Holding your feet directly above your knees, with flexed feet, gently push your feet into your hands as you pull your hands towards the floor creating isometric resistance. This pose is not appropriate during pregnancy and is counter-indicated where there is neck injury. The benefits of this pose include a gentle stretch to the inner groins and a relaxing and calming re-alignment of the back. This is a great pose to reduce stress and fatigue.
