Agnistambhasana – Firelog Pose

Agnistambhasana, or firelog pose, is an intermediate level position that aims to stretch your hips and groin.

 

The health benefits associated with the agnistambhasana pose includes improved overall digestive function by stimulating the abdominal organs. It also promotes increased sexual libido through the stretching of pelvic muscles and ligaments.

 

However, if you have recently suffered from any knee or back injury you should consult a doctor before attempting the position. If possible, always arrange to learn this position under the supervision of an experienced teacher.
