Asana 29 – Baddha Konasana
Posted in Uncategorized May 27th, 2009 by vera

This is a groin and hip opener and the longer you can stand to sit this way, the greater the release. I often do this for a couple of minutes.

Baddha means bound.  You’ve had baddha hands, now you have baddha feet.

Asana 24 – Virasana II
Posted in Uncategorized March 7th, 2009 by vera

Clasp hands (making baddha hands) and turn them palms up and hold. Then switch top hand. You can also clasp your hands in the back, either in the shoulder stretch of Goumukasana or the prayer pose of Parsvottanasana.
