Build up support across the front of your pelvis so that you can lie down with both sides of the pelvis evenly dropping down into the bolster. Additional support under your chest and/or forehead may be the perfect finishing touch to soften your neck and shoulders so you can take slow, deep breaths and be able to enjoy the sensations of your hips opening as you release your body into gravity.
