Outside of yoga being able to stretch forward with legs abducted or straddled transfers over to various sports and activities:

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners benefit from this pose, when looking for various chokes and submissions from the bottom guard or looking to move the limbs around their opponents limbs.
  • Break dancers, gymnasts, kicking martial arts stylists and pole dancers can improve their skills as well, if Kurmasana is well developed.

I have been practising yoga
review stating I have been practising yoga
I have been practising yoga for almost 8 years, but my true front split, side split and back bend are not going to where I wanted to be. Recently I tried easy flexibility's true front split, open front split, side split and back bend for intermediate, I would say my splits and back bend improved. Will continue to follow the programs so that I can Read more about review stating I have been practising yogaget to the levels I wanted.

Take a look at Kurmasana Online Training Program:

Try the following exercise:

1- Get into position as closely as the picture as you can.

The focus will be on the front leg and chest to the floor, so keep this in mind. Once you find your position and how deep you can go, don't push or relax there, go to step 2.
2- Lift your heel for a second.

This is the move that will create space for your target to go deeper. Once you lifted your heel don't stay here either, the move should be one quick second, then go right away to step 3.
3- Heel down and drop your chest.

It is important that as your heel is going down so is your chest. This way you have tricked your body and got deeper into the stretch.
Then step 3 becomes your new starting position! Keep repeating the sequence and get deeper and deeper without pain. You do the "leverage" then as the leverage returns the target goes deeper. Leverage again, as you retrieve the leverage your target goes deeper, and keep moving. Heel up, heel and chest down - heel up, heel and chest down, and so on.

& Flexibility Method that will Change Your Life Forever!

The Magic of
the Zaichik Stretching Method
  • Scientifically designed by a world-renowned fitness & flexibility expert Paul Zaihick, with over 30 years’ experience in the field.
  • Isolates muscle actions one by one (to ensure they are doing their job).
  • Takes care of the muscles that are tighter first
  • Allows easier focus, since you are working on one specific area at a time
  • You can do it all on your own! No pushing or bouncing is necessary, not even a partner!
  • Remember that phrase “No Pain – No Gain?”, well it doesn’t apply to our method. Each stretch is designed to be PAIN-FREE! Thereby eliminating discomfort and allowing you to continue training to achieve faster results.
  • Totally safe, since it was designed according to what is natural for your body.
  • Gains are permanent and steady
  • It is very enjoyable to do
