50. Parvatasana
mountain pose
Parvatasana or mountain pose gets its name because the body takes the shape of a mountain peak. This beautiful asana, done here by Neetu Singh, can be held for a long time, allowing the body to open up as you breath. It is also a great asana to help track your progress throughout your yoga practice. It is one of the postures in surya namaskar which should be practiced everyday with rising sun. Take some time in parvatasana each morning and see how your body adjusts to the posture day by day. Are your heels coming close to or touching the floor? Are you lengthening the legs as much as possible? Are you relaxing your shoulders? Can you feel each vertebrae slowly stretching more and more each time you practice? Because you are so grounded in this asana the body is flooded with awareness. Even if you like moving swiftly through sun salutations, take time in the first two round to hang out in each posture, slow the breathing down and feel each part of the body coming to life.
