Kundalini Yoga - Frog Pose

How to do Frog Pose

Frog Pose is one of the most famous postures in Kundalini yoga.
The benefit of Frog Pose is that it rejuvenates you mentally and physically.


 

Powerful Postures like Kundalini Yoga’s Frog Pose help you to move through the places in your life and in your emotions where you feel stuck and paralyzed, unable to move forward.

Instead of that afternoon cup of coffee, just squat down and do 26 froggies - and BAM! you’re awake and ready to take on the world.


Another great coffee alternative is Breath of Fire, but I’ll talk about that another time.


THE SECRET IS IN THE BREATH

The secret to mastering this pose is staying connected to your breath and to your navel, letting your inner strength and commitment support you. When it gets challenging - and it will get challenging - just increase the power of your breath.


And notice where your mind goes when it starts getting hard.

Do you go into judgment, victim mode, anger, stubbornness? Or can you keep a sense of humor, cultivating a lightness for yourself?

The way you are on the mat is reflected in how you behave off the mat. Yoga is a microcosm, showing you how you support yourself through the challenges of life.

Challenges make us strong because sometimes the most precious insights come through the difficult experiences - if we let them.

So, how do you do Frog Pose?



  • Come into a squatting position with your legs and feet spread into a wide V
  • Toes are off the floor, heels together, buttocks resting on the heels or calves
  • Fingertips are on the floor between the legs, chest is open and lifted
  • Inhale, keeping your fingertips on the floor, straighten your legs. Your buttocks will raise in the air as your head drops down, try to bring your nose towards the knees
  • Exhale, drop the buttocks to the heels, head comes up
  • Inhale and exhale very powerfully through the nose, you should hear your breath

    Continue for 11 Frogs and build up to 26, 54, and eventually 108

    To end: Inhale deeply, legs straight, letting your upper body dangle for a nice stretch

    Exhale and relax on your back for a few minutes. Feel the energy and aliveness within you.
