80. Upavista Konasana
Seated Wide Angle Pose
Yoga is a means to improve the overall health of the body. It is also believed to help link the mind, body, and spirit, and is often recommended as a de-stressing and calming routine. However, of late, yoga has been recognized as an alternate means for treating and managing health conditions.The Seated Wide Angle Pose is known as Upavistha Konasana in Sanskrit. ‘Upavistha’ means ‘seated or sitting’, ‘kona’ means ‘angle’ and ‘asana’ means ‘posture or pose’. The Seated Wide Angle Pose opens up the hips and stretches out both the hamstrings, the inner thighs, back, and the shoulders. The pose also improves circulation in the entire pelvic and abdominal areas and is an excellent workout for overall flexibility.

Keep the spine straight and bend forward at the hips.Move the hands forward between the legs. Then exhale and place the hands in front of you, palms pressing down on the floor. Keep the back straight. If possible, try to bring the breast bone parallel to the floor, hold both of the big toes with the index and middle fingers of the respective hands, or hold the outsides of the feet with each hand.Contract the abs and thighs and continue to press through the balls of the feet.Hold the pose for 10 to 60 seconds Repeat 2 to 3 times.
