- Place a folded blanket or a small pillow at the top edge of the mat.
- Come to a seated, cross-legged position in the center of the mat. Make your way to the fetal position (on either side), with your head comfortably rested on the blanket or pillow.
- Place a large bolster or pillow between your legs to support the knees and ankles. Hug a small bolster or pillow toward the chest.
- Rest your eyes and focus on your breath for at least five minutes. If your mind wanders, which is completely normal, bring your attention back to your breath by labeling your inhale and exhale.
Note: Pregnant women are recommended to rest on their left side.
