Dhandayaman Ekapada Sikandasana


One Foot behind theHead Pose
" It is also termed as Durvasasana as there is a belief that sage Durvasa performed meditation in this posture. Whatever the belief may be, this exercise provides body and mental equilibrium.
The description of this posture is short and quick while actually practicing it may take some time: Sit in Dandasana with your legs stretched out in front of you and your back straight. Hold your hand in front of your nose to check which of your nostrils is active. Grab the ankle of the active side (if your left nostril is active take the left ankle, if it is your right nostril, take the right ankle), bend your knee with inhalation, bring it over your head and place it slowly with exhalation on your neck. Smile and breathe! "
Procedure:
"1. Slowly wake up, ensure the leg is straight
2. Stay for a few seconds in this posture.
03. Practice this exercise on the other side also.
In Eka Pada Sirsasana, one foot rests behind your head; in Dwi Pada Sirsasana, both feet rest behind your head. In the full pose, your hands rest together at your heart and you balance on a very small area near your tailbone. As Iyengar explains, “This is difficult and one is apt to fall backwards.”
To illustrate this concept, let's consider the first stage of Supta Padangusthasana. In this pose, you lie on your back with your legs stretched straight out on the floor. Then you raise your right leg and catch your right foot by either grasping your big toe with your right hand or by holding a strap around your foot. Keeping your right leg straight, you pull your foot back toward your head. As you move your leg, you are going to feel the stretch in the back of your leg intensify. At some point, the increasingly intense sensation of stretch will begin to turn into pain. Lilias Folan used to refer to the point just before pain as a place of ""sweet discomfort."" The art of playing the edge is to find and work at that exact point of transition, without losing either the sweetness or the discomfort."
Benefits:
"1. Stimulates legs and shoulder and automatically cures leg and shoulder pain. Very effective for athletes and sportsmen.
2. Gives body equilibrium."
