You may also notice this posture being mentioned as one that is beneficial for sexuality and libido. The pose increases blood flow to the pelvic region and also places the pelvic area against the floor. Of course, wide spread legs can also create romantic or naughty thoughts.
It’s fine to remain upright in this posture until you’re comfortable with folding. You can also bend your knees slighty if needed, or use a blanklet under the buttocks for more comfort. Don’t spread the legs wider than what is comfortable, and take your time with trying to go wider and deeper.
