Yoga Baratha

Virasana is a sanskrit word vira meaning "hero," and asana meaning "pose”.

Technique:

Sit on the knees, with your thighs perpendicular to the floor touching the knees together. Feet to be in line with the hips, with the top of the feet flat on the floor & evenly pressed.

Then sit down between your feet. If your buttocks don`t comfortably rest on the floor, then fold the mat & rest the buttocks between the feet. Make sure both sitting bones are evenly supported. Then place the hands on your thighs & palms facing down. Now relax your upper body and shoulders, while spine should be straight and tall and look straight ahead. During the process assume that you are hero or warrior, who sits tall and proud.

Stay in this pose for 30 to 60 seconds. Gradually extend your stay up to 5 minutes. To come out, press your hands against the floor and lift your buttocks up, slightly higher than the heels. Cross your ankles underneath your buttocks, sit back over the feet and onto the floor, then stretch your legs out in front of you.
