Supta Baddha Konasana variation with blocks

This is a variation on the first pose. In the podcast we will use a blanket instead of blocks for a more gentle opening. Fold the blanket so that it is long and thin and can run up and down the full length of the spine. For deeper opening when you are ready you can use blocks.
