Parsvaika Pada Sarvangasana

We move now to yet another variation of Salmaba Sarvanagasana. Well I am sure this is that easy but I would say doable if you give it a try. In today’s post we would have a look on how to do “Parsvaika Pada Sarvangasana”

The word “Parsva” as we have seen in yoga many times means lateral or sideways. As one leg in this pose is twisted to the side this pose is thus named as “Parsvaika Pada Sarvanagasana” or One Leg Lateral Shoulder Stand.

How to Do this pose?
 1] To perform this pose we would come to the point where we are in Shoulder Stand. Our pose currently is in shoulder stand where our both legs are vertically upwards; our hands support our lower trunk.
2] Now we slowly bring down our right leg sideways to the floor. Do not worry if does not touches the floor on the first instance. Bring it down as far as you can.
3] Make sure the left leg is straight during the whole time.
4] Remain in that pose for a while and bring it back and repeat it with the left leg on the side.

 All the cautions are similar for those that mentioned in Salamba Sarvangasana and Eka Pada Sarvangasana.

 1] This pose is said to relieve constipation due to the contraction given to abdomen.
2] This pose also tones the kidneys.

Chakra Effect:
This pose is great for Throat Chakra.
