Simhasana

Simhasana is one of the major meditative Yoga Asana. It is one of the first four (and most important) of the 84 asanas taught by Lord Shiva, according to the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.Simhasana is also called as lion pose asana.

How To Do

  • Kneel on the floor and cross the front of the right ankle over the back of the left. The feet will point out to the sides. Sit back so the perineum snuggles down onto the on the top (right) heel.
  • Press your palms firmly against your knees. Fan the palms and splay your fingers like the sharpened claws of a large feline.
  • Take a deep inhalation through the nose. Then simultaneously open your mouth wide and stretch your tongue out, curling its tip down toward the chin, open your eyes wide, contract the muscles on the front of your throat, and exhale the breath slowly out through your mouth with a distinct "ha" sound. The breath should pass over the back of the throat.
  • You can roar two or three times. Then change the cross of the legs and repeat for the same number of times.

Benefits Of Simhasana

  • Relieves tension in the chest and face.
  • An often-overlooked benefit of Simhasana is that it stimulates the platysma, a flat, thin, rectangular-shaped muscle on the front of the throat. The platysma, when contracted, pulls down on the corners of the mouth and wrinkles the skin of the neck.
  • Simhasana helps keep the platysma firm as we age.
