Mandukasana (Frog Pose)- Instructions, Benefits & Contra-Indications

Mandukasana

Mandukasana is also known as Frog Pose. Frog Pose is extremely beneficial if you want to release back pain and stimulate your abdomen. It’s primary asana to control Diabetes Type 2 and is also used for Type 1 Patients. The pressure on the lower abdomen stimulates the digestive organs and pancreas, improves the blood flow and cures insomnia.

Instructions:
1. Keep your legs and knees together

2. Make fists and place them at your lower abdomen

3. Move your spine foward over the knees

4. Bend forward and relax your forehead on your knees

Important Note

Don’t practice this asana if you have hernias or are in any stage of pregnancy!

Benefits of Mandukasana:

  • Stretches the groins, inner thighs and hips
  • Opens the chest and shoulders
  • Strengthens the back muscles
  • Stimulates the digestive system

Contra-indications:
This asana should not be practiced if you suffer from knee injuries, ankle injuries or lower back pain.
