Can you practice Wheel with straight arms and Headstand without strain? Then, you're ready.
What's really being commemorated in this pose's name, and held up as an ideal for all practitioners, is the "spiritual warrior."
A good preparation for most of the seated forward bends, twists, and the wide-leg standing poses.
Purvottanasana counteracts the effects of Chaturanga by stretching the pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, and anterior deltoids.
Customarily entered from Virabhadrasana I. Here we'll move into the pose from a high lunge position.
One poetic translation of this pose means "the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart."
