75. Tittibhasana
Firefly Pose
Tittibhasana (Firefly Pose) is a posture that requires strength of the upper body and hamstrings that are flexible. However, even if you have not mastered these two, you can still practice this challenging posture. This is an arm balancing posture that incorporates the legs flexibility with core strength. When the lower body is raised from the mat, the pose strengthens the shoulders and wrists further. vFor you to remain elevated, a balance must be found by the lower body in distributing energy and weight back and forward equally.The Firefly Pose in yoga gets its name because the position that you come into while performing the pose is similar to that of a flying firefly. This pose is one of the postures that need to be practiced consistently so as to perfect them. Unfortunately, the Tittibhasana or Firefly Pose is not taught regularly in the classes of Vinyasa. Ashtanga yoga is the exception, where this pose is part of the primary series, giving a good opportunity to perform this posture in every session. However, before taking up the Firefly Pose, it is important that you remember that it is considered an advanced posture. Therefore, if you do not have proper guidance or are not experienced enough, this posture should not be attempted. If your body is not prepared for the movements of this posture, you could risk an injury. However, if you are ready to practice this pose you should make sure to practice it regularly to experience the benefits. It is also essential that you maintain a proper diet to get the most out of this pose.
Procedure:
To start the Firefly Pose steps, you should first come into the squatting position; your feet should be at a lesser distance than your shoulders. Let your pelvis tilt forward and your trunk be brought between your legs. With your trunk kept low, let your legs straighten sufficiently to bring your pelvis to about the height of your knees. Then bring your shoulder and left upper arm as far as you can under your left thigh, a little above your knee. Let your left hand be placed on the ground at your foots outside edge with your fingers pointing in the forward direction. These actions should be repeated with the other side as well.By changing your body’s center of gravity, carefully you should bring yourself to come off the floor. Let your hands press down on the floor and start to slowly bring your weight away from your feet and to your hands. Your inner thighs should be placed as high up alongside your arms as is possible. After taking a deep breath, your legs should be stretched out to your sides where they should be kept as straight as possible. Your pelvis should be kept high so that your legs remain parallel to the ground.Then, let the bases of the big toes be pressed through, but with your toes pulled back to the torso; keep your toes spread apart. The inner portion of your feet should be in a slightly forward angle, and the outer part of your feet should be a little back.Let your arms be straightened as much as you can. Bring your chest to hollow out while you broaden your shoulder blades as far as you possibly can. This will make your upper back round, which will bring your torso higher.Without letting your neck tense, let your head be lifted up and look forward. Keep your breathing slow and remain in the position for 15 seconds or more. Then, let your feet be released to the floor while breathing out.
