Mandukasana Yoga: In Sanskrit, the term ‘Manduka’ means ‘frog’. The yoga practitioner while practising this posture will have to arrange his legs akin to the hind legs of a frog.
Methodology of Mandukasana Yoga
- One can proceed to the Mandukasana posture from the Vajrasana position.
- Your posterior must be firmly planted on the ground.
- The posterior will have to be placed on between the upturned feet.
- The inner edges of the feet should be encircling the posterior.
- Rest the knees on the floor.
- Spread the knees to the maximum limit.
- The soles will be facing upwards.
- The feet will be pointing towards each other.
- The toes must touch each other while they remain behind the posterior.
- In this position you would be squatting between the heels.
- Rest the palms downwards on the knees.

Maintain this position till you start feeling the strain. Generally, this should be experienced in about 10 seconds.
