Thunderbolt (Vajrasana)

A Vata-Pacifying Yoga Pose
Thunderbolt Pose

Begin on hands and knees. Bring the ankles and knees together, and gently move the hips back to rest on your heels. If this is uncomfortable for your knees, place a block between the feet to sit on.

Vata Focus:

Releasing the pelvis and settling into breath, with a gentle focus.


Good for the knees, digestion, and moving energy down (apana vayu).
