Master Class: Visvamitrasana

Featured Issue: June 2010

Visvamitrasana (Pose Dedicated to Visvamitra) seems like one of those poses. Its complexity can look overwhelming and lead to the illusion that it is inaccessible. But when you practice constructing the pose one element at a time, you'll find that it flows together seamlessly. For the June issue of Yoga Journal, Jason Crandell created this sequence to help you break down Visvamitrasana into manageable increments. Here, prepare with Viparita Karani (Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose), variation; Parivritta Janu Sirasana (Revolved Head-of-the-Knee Pose); Baddha Parsvakonasana (Bound Side Angle Pose); and Vasisthasana (Side Plank Pose), variation.

The exercise instructions and advice presented in this video are designed for people who are in good health and physically fit. They are not intended to substitute for medical counseling. The creators, producers, participants, and distributors of Yoga Journal disclaim any liability for loss or injury in connection with the exercises shown or the instruction and advice expressed.
