Translation: Pressure on the Ears
This is another popular yoga posture that is done in combination with a shoulderstand sequence. Karnapidasana sequences very well with Urdhva Mukha Paschimottasana Yoganidrasana and Halasana above. It is also good to do a variation that is half way between this pose and Halasana. This can be done by simply bending on knee beside the ear instead of both.
A side version of this yoga posture can also be performed by simple placing both knees over to one side of the head.
