In Iyengar yoga, when performing Tāḍāsana, the arms can be raised over the head or kept at the sides of the legs. In Iyengar yoga styles, Samasthitiḥ is synonymous with Tāḍāsana
Iyengar claims practice of this Trikonasana improves the flexibility of the spine, corrects alignment of the shoulders; relieves backache, gastritis, indigestion, acidity, flatulence; massages and tones the pelvic organs, corrects the effects of a sedentary lifestyle or faulty posture, assists treatment of neck sprains, reduces stiffness in the neck, shoulders and knees, strengthens the ankles and tones the ligaments of the arms and legs.
The name comes from the Sanskrit words utthita meaning “extended”, parsva meaning “side or flank”, kona meaning “angle”
This āsana is a counter posture to Uttitha Trikonasana but in reality is a much more complex āsana.
Virabhadrasanas are poses commemorating the exploits of a mythical warrior. The character Virabhdadra is not simply a warrior. Like Shiva, he destroys to save: His real enemy is the ego.By cutting off the head of the ego, Virabhadra helps remind us to humble ourselves.
The name of this pose comes from “setu” meaning “bridge”, “bandha” meaning “bound”, “sarvanga” meaning “full body”, and “asana” meaning “posture” or “seat”.Setu Bandha Sarvangasana has many benefits: it strengthens the leg and glute muscles, increases the spinal flexibility, opens up the chest and front shoulders.
Place a chair with its back to the wall. Fold your mat up and place it on the seat of the chair. Place a block on top turned up the tallest way.

Stand with your right hip at the wall, your left hip directly above the ankle and the foot pointing straight ahead, not turned out. Bend the right leg and place the right foot up on the block.Link the thumbs, inhale and reach the arms up alongside the ears.Exhale and turn the trunk towards the wall and bring the arms into position.
