Baddha konasana is also known as the bound angle pose or the cobbler pose. The word ‘baddha’ in Sanskrit means bound. The meaning of ‘kona’ is split or angle. Baddha konasana is comparatively easy to do and is suitable for everybody to try. But if you want to go for something more relaxing, try the supta baddha konasana or the reclined bound angle pose.
Baddha konasana stretches your inner thighs and groin. This is a really helpful yoga pose to increase the flexibility of your ankles, knees, hips and feet. On the other hand, supta baddha konasana is a restorative yoga pose for body correction and proper sleep. Doing supta baddha konasana benefits you by helping you sleep better. Practicing this yoga pose has a calming effect and results in a relaxed state of mind.
The bound angle pose opens and increases circulation to the pelvic girdle region. Thus, it makes for a great prenatal exercise, and can also help relieve menstrual cramps. Moving your body from side to side while you are in this pose can massage your hip area.
