Exercise-123: Santulana parvatasana (The balancing mountain pose)
- Sit in padmasana.
- Gaze at a fixed point.
- Using the hands for support, slowly rise on to the knees. Straighten the hips and trunk.
- Slowly raise both hands straight over the head, one at a time.
Practice with normal, unrestrained breathing.
Practice for as long as possible.
This is a reasonably difficult balancing pose and so the concentration should only be directed towards maintaining balance.
This asana helps in the development of nervous balance.
