Anantasana Yoga Rishikesh

Anantasana or Sleeping Vishnu Pose is a form of yoga pose which can be practiced   at home or office or work place. The Anantasana word is originated from the Sanskrit phrase "The Ananta" which means ‘The Thing without any end ’ The word Anantasana has been taken from Sheshnag on which Lord vishnu used to take rest in Kshir sagar . This pose resembles with pose of Lord Vishnu where he is lyside-reclining left leg pose, This pose is also known as side reclining left leg pose.

The name comes from the Sanskrit words janu meaning "knee", shirsha meaning "head", and asana meaning "posture" or "seat". Although it bears a similar name, Janu Sirsanana bears little resemblance to Sirsasana (Headstand).

How to Do JanusirsanaJanusirsana

In a seated position, one leg is extended with toes pointing upward, and the other leg is bent with knee pointing away from the straight leg and the sole of the foot in by the groin. The torso turns and folds over the extended leg.

Janu Sirsasana is a spinal twist, as well as a forward fold. The potential is to free up constriction in different parts of the back and to loosen the hamstrings.

Janu Sirsasana differs from Paschimottanasana in its asymmetry in the legs and hips, and in the twisting action this asana imparts to the spine.

Variations
There are many variations to the practice of Janu Sirsasana. These include:

Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana (Revolved Head-to-Knee Pose) begins in the same seated leg position as Janu Sirsanana, but with the torso revolved to face toward the bent leg, then bending sideways over the straight leg.
Janu Sirsasana B is set up the same as Janu Sirsasana (also known as "Janu Sirsasana A") but with the foot of the bent leg placed under the thigh of the straight leg.
Janu Sirsasana C is set up the same as Janu Sirsasana A, but with the foot of the bent leg turned so that the heel points upward and the toes press down into the earth.
