The Bound Angle pose (Baddha Konasana) is an amazing yoga posture for stretching, breath work, chanting and meditation. It is a beginner friendly pose suitable for everybody.

Tips To Practice Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana).

If you suffer from knee, groin or hips injury, you should avoid this pose. Always be mindful of how you feel and use props for extra support when necessary.

If you have sciatica, it is highly recommended to sit on a pillow for more cushioning. It also helps a lot if you have tight hips. Perform the pose slowly if you are new to it.

During menstruation, it is best to avoid this posture. Make sure to practice on an empty stomach. Early morning or late evening before sleep are the best time to practice.

Remember to breathe deeply through the nose. Do not force your knees down as it leads to injury. Instead, try to relax your hips as much as you can. Flexibility comes with practice.

Summing up:

Practice the amazing Bound Angle yoga pose (Baddha Konasana) to gain strength and flexibility around the back, hips, thighs and knees.

It is a wonderful posture I recommend to everybody. This pose seems simple but requires lots of flexibility, mobility, focus and discipline.

Practice it often for breathing exercises, meditation and mantras. It is a great way to relax, calm down, find inner peace, balance and harmony.
