Master Class: Visvamitrasana
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.
