Vajrasana with Anjali Mudra Pose

Vajrasana with Anjali Mudra

Kneeling with Prayer Hands pose

This pose stretches the thighs, knees, ankles and feet. It opens the heart and chest, and helps calm and stabilise the mind.

Getting into the pose:

1. Start kneeling on the floor and place a blanket under your knees if required. Tuck your toes under. Lengthen your spine, broaden across your collarbone and relax your shoulders.

2. Place your hands in prayer position in front of your face and drop your head back. If this isn’t comfortable, continue to look forward.

3. Try to keep your weight balanced and running through the centre of your body.

4. Hold for five deep breaths.
