Eka Pada Sirsasana is also called the foot behind the head pose. This is considered an advanced pose calling the flexibility of the hip extensors and internal rotators. There are many traditional benefits attributed to this pose, from lowering stress and anxiety to massaging the internal organs. This pose is also a gate way to more advanced yoga poses and hand balances.
Outside of yoga being able to place the foot behind the head transfers over to various sports and activities. For example Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners benefit from this pose, when looking for various chokes and submission from the bottom guard. Break dancers, kicking martial arts stylists and pole dancers can improve their skills as well, if Eka Pada Sirsasana is well developed.
A traditional yoga method of obtaining this pose can take many years. The reason for this is because yoga poses usually focus on many muscle groups at the same time. Our program is very different. The pose is quickly broken up into it’s components. Each is targeted quickly with kinesiological stretching techniques. Pricinciples of creating space in the same muscles through multiple actions is used. This allows for quick flexibility development, while avoiding the stretch reflex. The progress comes much faster, than with standard yoga techniques.
