Yoga Poses


An asana is a body posture, originally and still a general term for a sitting meditation pose, and later extended in hatha yoga and modern yoga as exercise, to any type of pose or position, adding reclining, standing, inverted, twisting, and balancing poses.
Asanas are called yoga poses or yoga postures in English.

Bakasana {Crane Pose}

It is arm balancing poses in which hands are planted on the floor, shins rest upon upper arms, and feet lift up.

Bhujapidasana or Arm pressing posture

This yoga asana require balance, flexibility and strength in the arms and shoulders, wrist to balance on the palms with the legs to wrapped around the shoulder or upper arms.


The meaning of Bhujang is cobra and asana means yoga pose. Bhujangasana is the stretching yoga exercise of the front torso and the spine. Bhujangasana is the final stage when the cobra is ready to attack its prey by raising its hood; hence the name is cobra pose.

Eka Pada Koundinyasana (परिवृत्त एक पद कोउन्दिन्यासन)

The asana is dedicated to the sage Koundinya. This twisting arm-balance asana is a derived version of Koundinyasana (named after sage Koundinya) wherein the strong twist initiated by the legs stimulates the digestive organs and rejuvenates the spine.


Eka Pada Koundinyasana (eh-kah pah-dah cown-din-YAHS-anna) eka = one pada = foot Koundinya = the sage Koundinya

Padma Parvatasana

Padma Parvatasana is a simple Yoga practice that is performed in a seated pose. Parvatasana is derived from two Sanskrit words - “Parvat” meaning mountain and “Asana” meaning pose.
