Konasana

This Asana has come through tradition. Its reference is not found in old Yogic Texts.

Technique :-
  1. Stand erect with legs together, hands by the side of the thighs.

  2. Make two or two and half feet distance between two legs and raise both the hands towards each side, so to make a parallel line with shoulder.

  3. Now bending lateral towards right side, slowly bring your right hand downward and bring left hand towards sky.

  4. Slowly bring your right hand upto the right ankle.

  5. Now slowly return to the original position. Stand erect and keep the hands parallel to the shoulderline. Distance between legs will also continue.

  6. The same should be repeated from the left side by bringing your left hand towards left ankle. This makes one round of Konasana.

Remember :-
  1. Do not jump to make distance between two legs.

  2. If it is difficult to attain final position on very first day, increase the practice gradually.
Benefits and Limitations :-
  1. Its practice makes the spine flexible.

  2. This is advantageous in back pain (hip).

  3. Those suffering from cervical and lumbar spondilitis and hypertension should not practise it.
