A variation on Vajrasana, this pose requires a deep relaxation in the inner thigh and provides a very rooted, relaxed meditative seat. From Vajrasana, move the heels to the outside of the hips and allow the buttocks to relax down to the ground. The inner thighs roll inward and the tops of the feet are flat and point straight back, parallel to the hips. Ideally, the knees stay together. Allow the lower spine to press slightly forward, keeping the natural curve in the low back. The name implies its benefits; the practice of this asana balances the pelvis and the Second Chakra.
