This is one of my favorite poses! Janu Sirsasana is a hip opening, one-legged forward fold which calms the central nervous system making it perfect for when you have too much stress. Let’s admit it, even the most zen of us have to deal with real life which can be, well, less than zen. Due to it’s asymmetrical fold, this pose also helps to stretch the side of the body. Hello, QL & Psoas! The Psoas muscles are the “fight or flight” muscles so if we can help them, the whole body and mind can finally breathe a little deeper and relax.
I LOVE this pose! I hope you will too!
