HEALTH BENEFITS OF PRACTICING VAJRASANA
Here are the health benefits of practicing Vajrasana every day:
1. Good for our Digestive System
Performing vajrasana helps our digestive system in many ways. It obstructs blood flow to our legs and thighs and increases it in our stomach area, thus improving our bowel movements and relieving constipation.
2. Relieve gas and acidity
Vajrasana also helps us to get rid of flatulence (gas) and acidity. It ensures better absorption of nutrients by our body.
3. Relieves Lower Back Pain
It also helps to relieve pain caused by sciatica.
Performing Vajrasana helps to increase the flexibility of thigh and foot muscles and also the muscles around our hip, knees, and ankles. This helps to relieve rheumatic pain in these areas due to stiffness.
Vajrasana also helps in reducing heel pain caused due to calcaneal spurs and pain due to gout.
5. Increase blood circulation
Performing Vajrasana increases blood circulation in the pelvis and strengthens our pelvic floor muscles. It is thus useful for women suffering from stress urinary incontinence.
6. Ease menstrual cramps
It also helps to ease out labour pain and menstrual cramps.
7. Good pose for meditation
Vajrasana is a good asana to practice meditation. Performing breathing exercises in this pose helps to calm our mind and benefit us emotionally.
