Yoga posture - Virasana
Translation: Hero Pose
This is a pose you can meditate in. It also stretches the knees.
An easy yoga posture to enter this posture from is
Balasana the Child Pose.
It can be done sitting on a block or cushion if you have knee problems or they are inflexible.
Interlock the hands and stretch the arms upwards. This will stretch the shoulders.
This yoga posture is quite often performed for meditation instead of sitting
with the legs crossed. Perform this posture for meditation if you prefer it. You
may want to sit on a block or folded blanket while performing this posture. It
will take some of the strain away from the knees and allow you to stay in the
posture for longer.
Yoga posture like the Pigeon Pose (Kapotasana)
and Half Lotus (Ardha Padmasana) bend the
knee and rotate it one way. This yoga posture also bends the knee joint and
rotates it the opposite way. Therefore it is a good counter balancing yoga
posture for the knee joint.
