Cobbler's Pose or Bound Angle Pose - Baddha Konasana

You are sitting on the beach watching the world go by.
Good time to practice a little yoga!

It's like sitting cross-legged except you put your feet together.  If you have 
difficulty with your hips, you may need to sit on a height.  General rule; 
knees should be no higher than the top of your hip.   Press your feet together 
and concentrate on pushing your knees towards the ground. Keep your back 
straight.  If you cannot reach your feet or ankles to hold, have a yoga belt 
handy. Hold for 30 seconds and release.  Repeat again.

I like to sit in this pose as an alternative to cross-legged pose.  You are sitting 
evenly, not pressing down on an ankle.
