Eight Angle Pose – Astavakrasana

  1. You should begin by coming to the cross-legged position and making yourself comfortable.
  2. The right knee should be bent and your right foot’s sole should be brought near the right buttock.
  3. Let your right arm thread below your right knee. Raise the right foot’s sole off the ground, and make your shin parallel to the ground.
  4. You should attempt to bring your right knee to come up as high as possible on your right arm. The knee may even be brought over the right shoulder.
  5. Let both your palms be planted on the ground, while the left leg is straightened.
  6. By pressing into your palms, raise your body off the ground.
  7. Once the left leg is raised, bend the leg, and let the left ankle hook around the right one.
  8. Your torso should then be brought forward so that it becomes parallel to the ground. Then, bring both your legs to come to the right side of your body.
  9. Make both your legs straight.
  10. Remain in this posture for around 30 to 60 seconds with your breathing kept smooth and even. Then, bring your body back down to the ground and repeat the steps for the other side.
