The MTA has recently created a NYC subway campaign targeting male riders who can't help but spread their joy. And while these akimbo passengers take up a tad too much urban real estate with their distally-placed knees and wide-open thighs, maybe it's time to look at this from a more holistic perspective. Cobbler's Pose (Baddha Konasana) is a powerful hip opener that promotes better abdominal and reproductive organ function. It also provides easy access to the sacral chakra, and when this puppy is tapped into, cleared, and balanced, all sorts of creative energy may begin to flow. So are we really going to deny subway passengers a hip-opening chakra cleanse? Maybe. But before rolling your eyes at the next offending manspreader you spot on a crowded A Train, consider his unwitting path to enlightenment.
