Supta Vajrasana

Sit in Vajrasana. Slowly bend the torso backward. With the support of your arms gently place the head on the ground. For more comfort you can rest your head on your palms. Close the eyes. Breathe gently.

Remain in the position for thirty seconds at first. Slowly increase the duration to three minutes. Remember, while lying in Supta Vajrasana your spine does not touch the floor completely. Only the upper part of it touches the ground.

Effect: Blood circulation to the internal organs like kidney, liver and pancreas is properly maintained. Supta Vajrasana is a good exercise for the health of women who suffer stomach pain during menstruation.
