Category: Anantasana


This side-reclining pose stretches the backs of the legs, the sides of the torso, and tones the belly. The name comes from the Sanskrit words ananta (अनन्त) meaning “without end” or “the infinite one”, derived from the name of the thousand-headed serpent Sesa upon which Vishnu rested at the bottom of the primordial ocean, and Asana (आसन, Āsana) meaning “posture” or “seat”.
