Supported Easy Pose (Sukhasana) with a Block

Easy Seated pose stretches the spine and opens the collarbones, chest, and hips. It can help calm stress and anxiety, and improves overall posture.

Placing a block under the buttocks in Easy Seated Pose is great for beginners who struggle with keeping a straight spine and good posture in while seated on the floor. Tilting the hips forward takes pressure off the back and is an excellent transition pose for people new to yoga.
