Bound Angle Pose: Its Holistic Benefits

Bound Angle Pose, or Baddha Konasana, is one of my absolute favorite yoga poses. A lovely hip opener and the perfect pose for meditation (or just hanging out around the house), Bound Angle is chock-full of awesome benefits.

Here’s some convincing if you haven’t yet included this amazing pose in your yoga practice. Here are some of Bound Angle’s best benefits.

Physical Benefits

Bound Angle opens the hips, and who doesn’t like a good hip opener? You’ll immediately feel the benefits of this pose after a long day at work. The Bound Angle pose stimulates your internal organs and improves digestion.

If you’re having trouble getting out of bed because you have a Moon Cycle, you might want to try Baddha Konasana before you get up.

If you want to do a more Yin variation of Baddha Konasana, then bring your feet further away from your hips so that the legs form a diamond shape. Fold forward slowly over your feet and hold for 3 to 5 minutes. You will feel more energy throughout the day as you open all your connective tissue in your hips, spine, and knees.

Mental Benefits

It’s important to know how to relieve stress in our wild and stressed-out world. Yoga is great, but you don’t have to take an hour-long class. Baddha Konasana can help you relieve stress!

Spread your knees out and let gravity pull you down to the floor. Close your eyes and start to focus. After 5-10 minutes of breathing in and out, open your eyes and gently exit the pose. It’s so easy!

Why not try the Bound Angle Pose? You’ll feel happier and more connected if you incorporate meditation into your daily routine.

Spiritual Benefits

Feeling less passionate and connected with your partner? Bound Angle Pose will get you fired up!

The Root Chakra, also known as the Sacral Chakra, is activated by practicing the Bound Angle Pose. The Root Chakra is connected to our senses of security and safety, as well as our sexuality. The Sacral Chakra is connected to our emotions, relationships, and pleasure.

Baddha konasana can help you reconnect with your sensuality and sexuality, resulting in better relationships with your partner. In Baddha Konasana meditation, visualize the colors orange and red (orange being the color Svadisthana and red the color Muladhara) spinning around in circles.

If it helps, you can repeat the Bija mantra or seed mantra for these two chakras. The Bija Mantra is LAM for Muladhara (pronounced “lum”) and VAM for Svadisthana.
