Bird of Paradise Pose (Svarga Dvidasana)

Bird of Paradise Pose, also called Svarga Dvidasana, is a standing balancing pose. Before you practice this pose, you must be able to do a Bound Extended Side Angle Pose. The pose can help to boost energy in your body and hence can be included in the sequence of yoga. Standing on one leg will strengthen your quadriceps, calves, and glutes. Avoid this pose if you have a hamstring or hip injury.

2 - Maintain the full bend by reaching your right arm underneath your right leg and keeping your left shoulder as close to the ground as possible. Hold your hands near the outermost part of your right thigh.
3 - Lower your gaze to your right toes and lift your left foot to the top of your mat. Move your feet to the width of your hips.
4 - To keep your balance, shift your weight onto your left leg and look straight ahead. Gradually straighten your right leg and bring it into full extension.
5 - Hold for five to ten breaths before releasing the pose by lowering your right foot to the ground.
