Tortoise Pose

Tortoise Pose

Kurmasana or the Tortoise Pose resembles a tortoise that withdraws into its shell when threatened or agitated. The name comes from the Sanskrit words ‘kurma’ meaning tortoise and ‘asana’ meaning pose. Practicing the Kurmasana enables you to draw inward and cut out the clutter of the outside world. It will give you a euphoric feeling of connecting with your inner world.
