The Sanskrit word baddha means a bond, chain, caught or restrained. The word pada means foot, and kona means corner or angle therefore this is the restrained-foot-angle posture. The baddha-konasana is one of the few postures that can be practiced comfortably soon after eating. Baddha Konasana destroys disease and gets rid of fatigue.
