Dwikonasan (Double Angle Pose)

  • Stand up straight—in an upright position—with both feet joined together and arms by your sides, i.e. Saral Tadasan.
  • Now, spread your feet about 1-1.5 foot apart.
  • Gradually, bring your arms behind the back and interlock the fingers tightly, resting them on your coccyx (tailbone).
  • Breathe in (Radhey).
  • While breathing out (Krishna), start leaning your body downward in front from the hips; and simultaneously lift up your arms behind the back as higher as possible. 
  • Keep your legs and arms stretched.
  • Raise your head a bit and look forward.
  • Be in this pose for 15-20 seconds with deep and even breathing.
  • Return to the upright position by lowering your arms smoothly.
  • Repeat it around three times.
  • Finally, come into Shithil Tadasan and relax.
  • On mentally chanting “Radhey Krishna” along with breaths and the bodily movements synchronized with them
  • On the stretch of the arms, shoulders, upper back, and the buttocks
  • On spontaneously feeling the omnipresence of “Radhey Krishna”
  • The whole body gains superb flexibility. 
  • The chest is flattened and the neck  becomes shapely. 
  • Dwikonasan is considerably helpful for the internal muscles of the upper back and the shoulders.
  • People having problems in the shoulder joints should not include this asan in their Yog package.
