 Ananta Yoga Poses And Benefits

 Ananta Yoga Poses And Benefits, Ananta is the name of the thousand-headed serpent upon which famous deity Vishnu rests at the bottom of the primordial ocean.
Ananta is also a name for Vishnu himself. While he sleep a lotus grows from his navel. In that lotus is born Brahma, the Creator of the universe.

Bend your right knee and grab the toes with your right hand’s forefinger and thumb.
If you don’t yet have the stretch needed to hold the toes after the leg is again straightened, loop a yoga belt or strap around the sole of the right foot and grasp it as close to your foot as probable while still being able to make straight the leg.
As you exhale, extend the right arm and leg up at the same time toward the ceiling. Both your resting leg and your comprehensive leg should be actively stretch and straight.
