"Pie in the Sky' Yogini: Supported Virasana (Hero Pose)
Virasana or hero's pose is wonderful to support with a block between your heels so the short edges of the block center on your ankles. Sit back and press the tops of your feet and toenails evenly into the ground. Inhale and lengthen the crown of your head upwards. Make sure the block evenly supports both sitting bones. Place your hands on your thighs or over your belly as you roll your shoulder heads back. Begin to cultivate the breath - the victorious breath (Ujjayi) by sweeping the breath along the back of your throat. Enjoy this asana with each breath and expand through the heart.
