Feel the Yoga With Purva – July 2017


Vajrasana is a magical yoga Asana that helps us melt belly fat. If
you are slim and trim with a flat belly, you would definitely want to
maintain this figure. Practice Vajrasana regularly for at least 15-20
minutes immediately after meals and you won’t regret later.
Vajrasana originates from two words Vajra and Asana – vajra meaning ‘Diamond’ and Asana meaning ‘Pose’.

How to do
With knees, ankles and big toes touching the ground, take a kneeling
position. One should sit on the heels and place your palms on your knees. The spine should be erect and breathing should be deep.

Vajrasana calms down your mind. Losing weight becomes easier with regular practice of Vajrasana. You will see a difference in your belly fat immediately after a few weeks of regularly practicing Vajrasana. It is the answer to constipation, stomach disorder, digestive problems and acidty. People with sciatica and severe lower back problems will benefit from regular practice. It also helps improve the blood circulation in the body.

Points to remember
You may feel pain in the legs when you begin to practice this asana. If
your legs ache, undo the asana and stretch your legs. Now massage your ankles, knees and calf muscles and pain gradually fades. If you have any kind of knee problem or have a history of knee injury or had recent knee surgery don’t practice Vajrasana.
