Sanskrit:  Baddha Konasana

Baddha Konasana is very simple, static seated pose designed to open our often tight groin and hip muscles. The pose is especially good for women during menses and menopause because it stimulates the ovaries. They are also benefits for men as it stimulates the prostate gland (safe guard man on social security disability).

However, the asana itself doesn’t make you loose any calories.  But, done in combination of other asanas (standing, balancing, inverted) sitting in a butterfly position will eventually help you burn calories in the region of the hips, waist, thighs and calves.
