One-Legged Inverted Staff Pose or eka pada viparita dandhasana

1. Upward Bow Pose/Wheel(Urdhva Dhanurasana)
-Lower down your palms and elbows to the ground.
2. Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana (Upward Facing Two-Foot Staff Pose )
– Both feet on the floor
3. Sirsasana (Supported Headstand)
– Fall back on your feet

Once you are in Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana, check your balance and slowly raise one leg up on the air. Keep your elbow and wrists firmly planted on the ground. You can stay in this pose as long as you want. In Astanga Yoga, you can stay in the pose for 5 beautiful, deep Ujjayi Breaths in each side. Keep your legs hip width apart. Roll the inner thighs down and the outer thighs up throughout. “The pose should feel almost as if you have a very slight and subtle pike position at the hips. “
