Beginner’s Tip

If it's difficult for you to stay on your bottom leg in Virasana, then attempt sitting on a height of 2 sunray yoga blankets to make Virasana easier on your knees. If that's still tough, then you'll be able to conjointly place your bottom foot close to your area as in Janu Sirsasana till you're more comfortable in Virasana.

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.
