‘Vajra’ meaning thunderbolt or diamond is a pose (asana) with the calves beneath the thighs. The first toe of both the feet touch each other and sit erect. This asana helps in digestive issues like constipation. It also strengthens the muscles of the legs and the back.
Probably one of the easiest pose ever, getting into Vajrasana is a cakewalk; however, sustaining it can be a challenge for beginners. All you have to do is to sit on your knees with a straight posture and upright spine. Make sure your feet rest flat on the ground with soles turned upward, supporting your glutes for the posture. Focus on your breathing and try to hold the pose for at least 30 seconds.
It is an important meditation posture because the body becomes upright and straight with no effort. The mind and body becomes stabilized and hence it is one of the recommended asanas for pranayam, concentration and meditation. Stimulates the vajra nadi and redirects sexual energy.
