Yoga VB 27 _ Viparita Karani Mudra _ Inverted Lake Pose _ Basic Yoga

Viparita Karani Mudra is a reversed posture, it is also known as “inverted lake pose”.

The Viparita Karani Mudra not only helps fight against aging, but also offers many benefits, both physical and mental.

The advantage of this Viparita Karani Mudra is that, no matter what level of yoga, the practitioner can do it easily and often.

Specifically, the Viparita Karani Mudra does not require an attempt to straighten the entire body in an upright position and to press the shoulder area with the neck as in the Shoulder Stand. This pose does not require as much curvature in the neck as in the Plow Pose. In fact, to practice the Viparita Karani Mudra, the practitioner only needs to maintain it in a relatively balanced state on the shoulders and upper back, while the hands only do partial support. In particular, the degree of compression on the head and face is only slightly and the cervical spine is still in a relatively straight condition, less prone to folding and less under strong pressure as in the Shoulder Stand and the Plow Pose.

For those who are unable to perform more difficult postures like Sirsana or Sarvangasana, the Viparita Karani Mudra posture will be a good choice for almost equivalent benefits.

In fact, during the practice of this “inverted lake pose”, the legs can be lowered to various levels. The legs can be high when the feet are above the head, or they can be lower when the knees are above the head. However, always make sure your feet are higher than your buttocks.

Some postures that support “reverse shoulder posture” must be practiced before:
– Diamond Pose (YogaVB 5)
– Child’s Pose (YogaVB 7)
– Bridge Pose (YogaVB 17)
– Legs Up The Wall Pose (YogaVB 24)
