Supta Virasana, or Reclining Hero's Pose, is the reclining variation of Virasana, a seated yoga pose, with the legs bent at the knees and the calves resting alongside the thighs, feet pointing backward. It is considered an intermediate pose that deeply stretches the back, legs, knees, hips and chest.
Supta virasana is a challenging pose and should not be performed by anyone who is uncomfortable sitting on his or her heels. In supta virasana, one sits on the floor between the heels, which causes a deeper stretch in the knees and ankles than seated virasana.
This pose involves intense internal rotation in the hip joint and acute flexion of the knees. It also deeply stretches the ankles.
