Each yoga figure, like the asana it represents,
is designed to improve

each posture brings the yogi, or practitioner, closer to self-realization

Sirshasana utthita in Sanskrit)
helps relieve stress and brings balance and health by
sending oxygen to the upper body and head..

(padmasana) helps bring clarity and centeredness to the
mind and body
