Regular practice of Vajrasana gives the body stability and firmness. In Sanskrit ‘Vajra’ means ‘adamant’. The yogic practitioner in this posture appears like a aperson who is rather adamant. Therefore the name.

  • Assume the Sukhasana postion.
  • Sit erect.
  • Stretch out the legs in front.
  • Draw in the legs one by one.
  • Place them by the posterior sides.
  • The soles must be kept upturned.
  • Firmly plant the posterior on the ground.
  • The posterior should be kept between the upturned heels.
  • The toes behind the posterior must be pointing towards each other.
  • The knees will have to be brought close to each other.
  • Place the palms on your knees.
  • Look straight ahead.
  • The body will have to remain firm and erect during the entire course of Vajrasana.

Here’s a variation of Vajrasana:

  • You can also place the upturned feet beneath the posterior instead of keeping them on the posterior sides.
  • This way you will be able to sit back between the heels while the toes will be crossing each other.
  • The posterior will rest between the inner portions of the upturned heels.
  • Hence, unlike the aforementioned original posture the posterior will not rest on the ground.
  • The breathing will remain the same.

Advantages of Vajrasana Yoga

  • Thigh flab is reduced.
  • The spine is exercised.
  • Your abdominal organs will be held in their appropriate positions.
  • The muscles in the vertebral column will be firmed up and strengthened.
  • The pelvic region will also be strengthened.
  • Stiff ligaments and joint of the toes, insteps, ankles, calves, knees, thighs and the hips are loosened.
