When we think of Patience, we all will have a posture that elicits thoughts or feelings. We certainly will continue to have themes and months to dive into those sensations of challenge, and how we work through those spaces. For this month we are looking at a space of patience with a more compassionate lens. (I’d like to acknowledge that Baddha Konasana IS that posture of challenge for some of us).
Baddha Konasana is quite a recognizable posture to most within and without the yoga community, it is translated into English in a number of ways. In Kids Yoga this class is often called the Butterfly Pose, in some circles the Cobbler’s Pose, and here as the Bound Angle Pose. Depending on the orientation of your pelvis, and SO many other factors, you may need/want to make a whole host of modifications to make this posture more desirable.
Coming into Baddha Konasana
This is a fantastic posture to play with, and to sit with. There are a lot of aspects of patience embedded in Baddha Konasana. Let’s spend some time this month sitting in a Baddha Konasana of our choosing.
