The Noose Pose

In today’s post we would do a little advanced pose ,again for many it might be simple, but for those who have just landed doing yoga for the first time this pose might be a bit tricky. Known as the “Pasasana” or the Noose Pose this pose is known for the way one takes the form of a knot or pasa in Sanskrit and thus the name Pasasnana.

How to do Pasasana?

1] Stand in Tadasana or the Mountain pose. The whole body straight and erect, inner ankles of the feet touching each other, knee joint with no bend , spine erect and arms on the side.
2] Now slowly sit down in squat position so that your buttocks sit on heal. Make sure the heal are touching the ground.
3] Now slowly turn your upper torso on to your left side so that the right shoulder comes near to the left knee joint.
4] Take the right hand and curbing both the legs try to grab the left hand from the other side. Have a look at the picture to understand properly.
5] Remain sitting for couple breathe in this way and then relax and come back to normal pose.

1] Make sure the heal touch the ground, for those who find it hard to touch have a small blanket or something under the heal to give a slight uplift.
2] Those with issues with back pain, herniated disc should try this pose only under expert guidance.

1] A great pose to work on the over stressed back muscles. I have to appreciate that this pose really works magic when I have been sitting on the desk for long hurting my back.
2] This pose stretches and strengthen the ankle joint
3] Stimulates digestion and thus help metabolism.

Chakra effect
This pose really works well on the Manipura Chakra
