Vipareeta Karani Mudra
Exercise-110: Vipareeta karani mudra (The inverted attitude)
- The method is the same as for sarvangasana, except the chin is not pressed against the chest in the final pose.
- The trunk is held at a 45 degree angle to the ground instead of at a right angle.
- This asana is very similar to sarvangasana in all respects.
It is easier and is recommended for beginners and persons with a stiff neck who are unable to perform sarvangasana.
- This posture is also used in kriya yoga.
