    Yoga Guide
    Regular practice of the baddhakona-asana stretches the knees and stimulates circulation in the legs. It
    should be practiced frequently until one is comfortable sitting in the padma-asana. The main areas of the
    body that are stimulated, besides the legs, are the stomach, pelvis and lower back. It is said to keep the
    kidneys, prostate and bladder healthy. The baddha-konasana is one of the few postures that can be
    practiced comfortably soon after eating.

    As the natural suppleness of the spine is restored after a period of practice you can begin to
    perfect the form of this asana and thus experience greater benefits.
    First be certain that the arms are as straight as possible with very little to no bend in the
    elbows. When you can hold this comfortably, begin breathing through the nostrils while
    holding the posture and attempt to get a greater arch in the spine by bringing your hands
    closer to your feet and/or bringing your feet closer to your hands. Finally, you can extend the
    duration of the chakra-asana by doing several repetitions in sequence without resting in-
    between. As you return from the posture keep the hands behind the shoulders and the soles
    of the feet flat on the floor and as soon as the back returns to floor im
