COBBLERS POSE

COBBLERS POSE

Cobblers Pose is an accessible beginning seated posture, especially when approached with a lifted seat. I like to start beginners elevated on a bolster  or meditation cushion. Both allow the student to find a taller, more upright spine while simultaneously lifting the front and back body as the hips gently stretch.

  • From Easy Pose or Staff Pose, bring the soles of the feet together.
  • Draw the feet towards the groin, but only so far in that you can still prioritize a lifted and neutral spine.
  • If the hips are very tight and this pose causes undue tension in the student, prop each knee up with a block.

WORK IN THE POSE

  • Press the outer edges of the feet together
  • Lift through the crown of the head.
  • Draw the front lower ribs in.
  • Relax the shoulders away from the ears.
  • Maybe forward fold if that feels good.
  • Check out the reclined, supported version of Cobblers Pose here!
  • Seated Side Bend or Wide Legged Forward Bend are both nice poses to take after this one.
