The Supta-Vajrasana or Fixed Firm Pose is a great pose to help with ankle and knee flexibility. It is also great for sciatica, varicose veins, gout, and improves liver, kidney, and bowel circulation. It is said to help with sexual longevity, and can activate kundalini energy. I really enjoy this pose as it helps to boost my energy levels and I always feel more energised and calm. In this post I will show you the steps of completing the Supta-Vajrasana yoga pose successfully.
Step #1 – Sit yourself into the Vajrasana pose. Place your palms beside the buttocks on the floor with your fingers pointed towards the front. Bending backward slowly, place the right elbow and forearm on the ground before placing the left elbow and forearm down.
Steps #2 – Arch your back gently as you bring the crown of your head down to the ground, and place the hands on your thighs. When doing this, try to keep your lower legs touching the floor while not over straining the ligaments and muscles of the legs.
Step #3 – Relaxing your body, close your eyes as you breathe slowly and deeply in the final position. Breathing in and taking the support of the arms and elbows, release into the reverse order with your head raised above the ground.
Step #4 – Shift your body weight on the elbow and left arm by sliding your body. Come slowly into a starting position. You should never straighten the legs first when leaving the final position as this may cause you to dislocate the knee joints.
