Hero pose (virasana) can be challenging and uncomfortable for lots of us. Maybe you’re experiencing:

  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Trouble sitting on the floor (or a block) between your heels
  • A sense of “hanging” and instability in this pose

You are not alone! Let’s look at some prop setups with a blanket and blocks that will make this pose more accessible for many bodies. I also talk about “the point” of hero pose, and what to do if you can’t be on your knees at all.

I hope you find these tips and tools helpful to personalize your hero pose! If you liked this video, I’d love to invite you to be part of the Body Positive Clubhouse.
