Find inner poise in Anantasana, a pose dedicated to the deity said to preserve and sustain the universe.
Anantasana (Reclining Pose Dedicated to Vishnu)
Lie on your left side. Extend your left arm in line with your left ear, stretch your left armpit toward the floor, and rest your head on your left hand. Then bend your right knee, hold your right big toe, and stretch your right arm and leg toward the ceiling. Draw your right buttock toward your front body and ground down through your left side. Place your left foot against a wall if the struggle is too intense. Take 10 breaths and enjoy. Repeat on the second side.
To Finish Rest in Center. Life on your back and take a few moments to align your body symmetrically. Breathe deeply and completely let go. Relax your entire body into the floor. Quiet your eyes, ears, tongue. Create a balance of stability and openness.
