It will help you open your hips and will help you stimulate your abdominal organs.

The Firelog Pose Step by Step

  • Get on your mat in a seated position.
  • Lean on one side to bring your foot over your knee. The foot has to rest on the knee.
  • Keeping your back straight now place your hands in the front.
  • Slowly reach to your front keeping your arms straight and hold for a few seconds.
  • Go back to your seated position.


  • If you have knee problems then do not try this pose, because you need to place your foot over one knee.
  • If you have knee problems you could try to place your foot closer to the knee but on the outside, not over it.
  • Slowly reach down to your front as you stretch.
  • Slowly go back to your original posture.
