Vajrasana, also known as the diamond pose, is a sitting posture which involves sitting on the knees with the calves beneath the thighs. It is the only pose that can be done on a full stomach.

The pose is ideal for practicing meditation and breathing exercises like Pranayama, Kapalabhati, and Anulom Vilom.

Vajrasana makes joints and ligaments strong as well as flexible. The muscles around the pelvic regions are greatly benefited. The posture also stimulates the functioning of kidneys, liver and pancreas.
