Setting this pose up takes a little time and effort, but it is well worth it. This is a lovely way to begin or end your practice.
Props involved: in the picture, there are several! A bolster is well placed to support the hips and lower back (while allowing the tailbone to drop down behind the bolster). If the bolster is too high, place a folded blanket underneath under back length-wise, making sure to support your head. Use an eyebag to block out the light and ease tension in your face with the light pressure of the flax. Arm rests are optional, and are fabulous options if your neck or upper chest feels tight.
