STEPS TO DO BUTTERFLY POSE
What is the butterfly pose and how do we do it?
This asana goes by many names, such as ‘titli asana’ and ‘Baddha Konasana’. This posture makes you tuck both the feet close to the pelvis area, with hands clasped tightly together. The highlight of this asana is how the legs give the appearance of a butterfly flapping its wings.
Here’s how to do the butterfly pose
Step 1: Sit on the floor on a mat or a well-cushioned area. Start by straightening your spine with legs stretched out.
Step 2: Now, bend both the knees to resemble a winged butterfly. Then, bring your feet towards your pelvis area, as close as you can and join them together, clasping your hands.
Step 3: Slowly breathe in and out, while pressing your thighs and knees downward towards the mat. Taking a cue from this position, start flapping both the legs up and down, like the wings of a butterfly.
Step 4: Remember to keep your spine straight while performing the pose and stretch your legs out to come back to the starting point.
