I think I could have described this pose in two short paragraphs---one to explain how to do it and the other to give the rather profound benefits of the pose---done.


This is great. Thanks a lot.

Please provide photos.


I agree that photos would really help...for those of us who learn visually. thanks.

Thanks so much for this inspiring article. I, too, have struggled with this posture for years, referring to it (humerously) as, īthe posture sent from the devilī. itīs a lot easier nowadays than it used to be as now i focus on feeling how it affects me rather than berating myself for not being able to do it comfortably. Thanks again!


pls some photos would be great to acomplish the asana


This was very helpful, but pictures of the various poses would have clarified the words even more. It's difficult for me to visualize just from verbal descriptions, particularly since I don't know the names of the poses.
