Knees to Chest (Apanasana)

A Vata-Pacifying Yoga Pose

knees to chest

Lie on your back and take a deep breath as you bring your knees toward your heart. Wrap your hands or arms around your legs and give yourself a big hug. For less pressure on the hips, open the knees wide as you hug them alongside your chest. 

Vata Focus:

Holding and focusing your energy.


Improves digestion, relieves pressure in the lower GI tract and tightness in the low back.
