Bhekasana (Frog Posture)


Bhekasana (Bhekāsana) = Frog-Posture

Dṛṣṭi: nāsāgre = to the nose

Place your forehead on the ground and the hands on the floor in front.

Inhale and lift the chest and head off the floor, bend the legs so that the feet come up towards you also.

Reach back towards your feet and hold them with your hands.

Eventually, work towards placing the hands on top of the feet, with the fingers facing forwards and the elbows backwards.

Push the feet down (aim to have them besides the body eventually) and lift the chest higher.

Hold here for up to five breaths.

Exhale as you release the pose.
