Cobbler Pose (butterfly) gives children a new way to sit, as they stretch and improve circulation in their legs. It has two main benefits: one is to stimulate the heart and improve general circulation; the other is to stretch the inner thighs, groins, and knees.
Sit on the floor, with your legs straight in front of you.
Keep your feet flat on the floor, and slide your feet closer to your body, so your knees are bent.
Gently press the bottoms of your feet together, and allow your knees to open like a book.
Hold this pose for as long as it is comfortable.
Lift your knees back together, then straighten your legs back out in front of you.
