LOSE YOURSELF TO AYURVEDA
KANDAMKULATHY ASANA OF THE WEEK.
POSE YOURSELF to VAJRASANA- The Diamond Pose
Vajrasana, one among the best meditation poses known is also claimed as the unbreakable Diamond Pose. It is the easiest and the best suggested pose to perform your breathing exercise. Sitting erect with your spine straight on knees, this asana proffers you with a bag of benefits. The asana stimulates the vajra nadi, activates prana in shushumna and redirects energy to the brain for spiritual purposes. Seated with closed eyes and a straight back in this ‘Namaz’ pose, you can enjoy calmness, peace of mind, and a vibrant health. It supplements positive energy and brings fulfilment to life.
ESSENCE OF THE ASANA:
In this posture, all seven chakras of the body are aligned in a straight line, one can experience its movement along their spinal cord throughout the asana. The pose firms and strengthens your spine, feet, ankles, and knee cap. It is great for your digestive system, strengthens your abdominal muscles and increases the flow of oxygen. It is also effective in relieving urinary disorders and helps in weight loss. It is effective in removing all toxins from the body and reducing those excess flabs. It adds strength to your calf and thigh muscles too. Vajrasana empowers the Vajra nadi and hence brace up all genital related organs and cure issues associated with those organs.
METHODS TO PERFORM THE ASANA:
1. Sit up on your knee with a four finger distance between both the knee cups
2. Keep the heels apart, both toes touching each other, and let buttocks rest on heels, or let them lie in between the heels.
3. Place your waist, neck and spine in a straight line. Rest both your hands on the knees and keep the elbows straight.

DURATION AND REPETITIONS:

NOTE: It always wise to take a note from your instructor before performing the asana if you are having any issues related to Ankles, knee caps, ligaments or any knee injuries.
