Bound Angle Pose

Bound angle pose or baddha konasana stretches your groin and inner thighs. This is a very useful pose for developing flexibility of the hips, knees, ankles and feet. It opens and increases circulation to the pelvic region.

Hence this is a very good prenatal exercise and can relieve menstrual problems. Avoid this pose if you have injury in the groin or knee region. You can use the wall for supporting the back if you have back.
