E for "Eka Pada Viparita Dandasana"

This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images.
 
 
 
Eka Pada Viparita Dandasana (One-Legged Inverted Staff Pose) is a heart opening posture, with emotional and physical effects. While is opens and expands your chest area, it also opens the thoracic spine and lumbar spine. Apart from a powerful leg stretch and front body stretch, it also stimulates many organs and glands like adrenal, thyroid, pituitary and pineal glands. It builds inner confidence and stillness of mind humbling the practioner.
