Pelvic Health and Baddha Konāsana

Apr 18, 2022

The key to a functional body-mind complex is a toned pelvic floor. Scientific findings estimate that approximately 51% of women suffer from incontinence* (see footnote).  A toned pelvic floor is dynamic and like a jellyfish. Many of the adductor muscles affect the shape of the pelvic floor, and can even create tension on the knees.

In general, men tend to be contracted in the posterior region of their pelvic floor, leading to back pain and a whole slew of other issues. BaddhaKonāsana is an effective way to balance the pelvic floor complex. 

Considered to be a boon for all women, Baddha Konāsana is a classical root pose, that tones the pelvic floor. It facilitates realignment of a tipped uterus, prolapse of the uterus, widens the pelvic floor as a pre-natal practice, and works wonders for menstrual cramps.

Even if you don't squirt when you cough or sneeze, Baddha Konāsana is an essential posture for self-care. As Krsna says in the Baghavad Gita, "Even a little bit of Yoga can alleviate much suffering".
