In this asana, the body is folded up tightly, resembling a foetus, hence the name
Initial Position - Padmasana
In this asana, the body is balanced on the coccyx. The arms have to be inserted between the legs such that you can bend the elbows fully so as to reach the hands to the ears.
On maintaining balance
Force the arms through the legs.
This asana should only be practiced by those who can perform padmasana with relative ease.
This asana should be held steady for at least 30 seconds to obtain the benefits, gradually increasing to 2 minutes with practice.
Those with hairy legs may find it difficult and painful to insert the arms between the legs. Those with a lot of fat or muscle on their legs will also find it difficult. Oil or water may be applied to the arms and legs to facilitate the insertion of the arms between the legs.
