HOW TO CARRY OUT BHARADVAJASANA

Let us see how to carry out bharadvajasana.

Bharadvaja is the name of one of the seven legendary mystics who according to the Hindu tradition have composed the famous Veda. This asana is therefore known as “the position of the sage Bharadvaja” or “seated twist pose”.

In the Hindu tradition, when suddenly on earth diseases appeared to hinder the life of the living beings, a group of wise men, mystics precisely from every corner of the earth gathered on the peaks of the Himalaya to find a solution to the problem. They began to meditate. Also Indra, The Lord Of The Gods came to their aid, telling them that he would have taught them the correct way to fight disease. The mystics then chose Bharadvaja, who according to them was the most appropriate to follow Indra and learn the teachings of traditional medicine “AYURVEDA”. On his return Bharadvaja passed on his knowledge to other disciples, each of whom wrote a treatise of Ayurveda.

HOW TO CARRY OUT BHARADVAJASANA

  • Sit on the mat in the Staff pose. Move your weight on the right gluteus, bend the knees and bring your legs to the left. Support the feet on the ground by the outer side of left hip, with the left ankle resting well on the right side.
  • Inhale and try to lengthen the bust upwards. As you exhale, rotate the torso to the right, while keeping the left buttock on the ground. Try to lengthen the sacrum toward the ground to keep the lumbar spine well stretched.
  • Try to insert the left hand under the right knee and place the right hand on the ground next to the right gluteus. Push your left shoulder slightly backwards, approaching the scapulae between them, continuing to rotate the torso to the left.
  • You can turn your head in both directions: toward the right, continuing the rotation of the bust, or toward the left, making a counter-rotation and looking over the left shoulder.
  • With every breath raise a little more the sternum, try to help yourself also with the thrust of the fingers, and rotate a little more the bust.
  •  Hold the pose till you can.
  • After about 30 seconds release the pose with an exhalation, return to starting position and then repeat on the other side for the same period of time.

But we must be careful with this position :

It is to be practiced with a lot of attention in the case of alterations of the arterial pressure, headache, insomnia and in the event of diarrhea episodes and for women during the menstruation period.
