Krounchasana ~ To enter this pose you start in seated position with both legs in front of you, then gently fold one leg placing the foot next to hip. Allow both hips bones to feel the mat below. Bend the straight leg and grab the foot with both hands. If you cannot reach your foot, place hands on lower leg and slowly straighten the leg. If you want more sensation, grab one wrist (opposite hand of lifted leg) with the other hand around the arch of your foot and fold forward towards the lifted-straight leg. This pose is counter-indicated during menstruation or if yogi has any serious knee or ankle injuries. This pose is beneficial for flat feet, flatulence and stretching the hamstrings. It also stimulates abdominal organs.
