What Is Pada Vajra Kriya or Preeta Kriya? Yoga for Pretty Feet?



The Hatha Yoga method offers an amazing collection of poses for keeping healthy feet, but the pressure of just sitting on the feet creates a fantastic bonus of full body wellness. 

Hatha Yoga Asanas pressurize reflex nerves, and this reflexogenic feedback works similarly to acupressure or acupuncture, helping organs across the eco-system. 


Many of the foot poses are well-known, including Vajra Asana, Siddha Asana, Ardha Padma Asana, and Padma Asana. 

However, understanding the entire foot posture system is uncommon. A Yoga student can benefit greatly from these more cryptic poses, both in terms of being able to execute Hatha Yoga sitting poses more effectively and in terms of attaining newfound foot health. 


The old adage says, "As the feet go, so goes the body." 


If you've ever experienced hurting feet, you know how much fun they take away from your life. 

Foot postures promote excellent circulation, which helps to maintain "beautiful" feet. On one of my abroad trips, I was astounded to see a lotion for foot massage promoted as "Preet." 

Preeta Kriya or Pada Vajra Kriya is the Sanskrit term for "pretty feet" and the name of a Kriya.
