Janushirasana or Head-to-Knee Pose
Janushirasana is a progression of seated yoga poses. From Sanskrit, Janu signifies “knee,” shirsa signifies “head” and asana signifies “represent.” The expectation of the posture is to overlap the body with the goal that the head draws nearer to the knee. In the full articulation of the stance, however, when the hamstrings and back of the body are open enough, the head will really move past the knee and to the shin.
There are three fundamental varieties of Janushirasana including somewhat extraordinary situating of the twisted leg in connection to the body. Every one of the three of the varieties is incorporated into the essential arrangement of Ashtanga yoga.
