Supta means reclining while vira is a hero or chief. Reclining Hero Pose stretches the abdomen, thighs and deep hip flexors (psoas), as well as the shins and ankles. It helps with sway back, improves digestion and helps soothe menstrual cramps. Make sure that you can sit comfortably on the floor between your feet before trying Supta Virasana.
