HOW TO CARRY OUT VAJRASANA

VAJRASANA OR THE DIAMOND POSE

Vajrasana in Sanskrit vara means both “Lightning” and “diamond” hence this asana is translated as “the lightning pose” or equally as “the diamond pose”.
In the ancient Hindu tradition, the word vara is found for the first time in the ancient book Rig Veda to indicate the weapon used by the god Indra: vara was considered a divine instrument equipped the characteristics of both the diamond (indestructibility) lightning (disruptive power).

HOW TO CARRY OUT VAJRASANA

  • First of all kneel on the mat keeping your knees close together or slightly spaced from each other.

  • Now place your glutes between the feet in the space in the shape of a cup.
  • Place your hands on your thighs, were they fold to your groin. Open your thumbs widely with your other four fingers facing towards the inner thigh.
  • The important thing is to keep your back straight and neck and head aligned with the spine.
  • Relax arms and the entire body.
