Yoga with Melissa Episode 28: Special Series on Hindu Deities, Balance with Vishnu with Dr Melissa West

by Melissa West on


Yoga with Melissa 28 is about creating balance with Vishnu. Vishnu is part of a trinity of Hindu Gods with Brahma the creator, Shiva the destroyer and Vishnu the preserver. We begin our class by balancing through nadi shodhana or alternate nostril breathing. We then move through a series of yoga postures or asanas to balance the right and left sides of our bodies from side bends, twists, apanasana or knee to chest pose. We balance in tree pose or vrksasana and also eagle pose or garudasana. One of Vishnu’s incarnations was as a cow herder so we practice cow’s face pose or gomukhasana.
