What's the name of this sitting posture?


Hi, could someone give me the name of this sitting posture please. It's almost identical to vajrasana but the legs are wider apart so that you sit on the floor instead of your heels.

Thank you.


Hero pose - Supta Virasana

More stretch if the feet are up on the toes and sit to the floor.
