Vishnu's Repose

Find inner poise in Anantasana, a pose dedicated to the deity said to preserve and sustain the universe.

By Jennifer Rodrigue, sequence by Elise Browning Miller

Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana (Extended Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose)

Bend your right knee, hold your right big toe, and straighten your right leg. If your leg doesn't straighten, use a strap. Lengthen through your right heel and ball of the foot for 2 breaths. Draw your right hip back. Then move your right leg out to the right and breathe into your inner right thigh for 5 breaths. Root down through your left heel, draw your inner left thigh back, and drop your right sitting bone. Bring your right leg back to center, release, and then change sides.
