Supta Baddha Konasana

Supta Baddha Konasana comes from sanskrit words Supta, in Sanskrit, meants reclining. Baddha means bound and Kona is angle. Asana means pose.Supta Baddha Konasana is a cultural yoga asana that tones the muscles of the legs and abdomen. It is performed in a reclining posture and relaxes the mind and body.

How To Do

  • From Dandasana (Staff Pose), come into the first stage of Baddha Konasana I (Bound Angle Pose I).
  • Loop a belt low down on the back, near the sacrum, over the thighs and shins, and under the feet.
  • Arrange the belt loop so that you pull the buckle towards you when you tighten it. Tightening the loop away from the thighs and towards the shins, rather than pulling the shins towards the thighs, puts an unnecessary torque on the sacrum.
  • Tighten the belt so that the legs are firmly contained, but still with room to move.
  • Exhale and recline.
  • Take the hands to the buttocks and lengthen the buttock flesh, sacrum and tailbone out towards the heels.
  • Either release the arms down by the sides, or reach the arms up alongside the ears, holding onto the elbows. Hold this position for several minutes.
  • Inhale and lift up through the center, coming back to Baddha Konasana I (Bound Angle Pose I).
