Asana

Michelle Dorer in Viranchyasana
"Viranchyasana is one of the names of Brahma, the supreme Being, the first deity of the Hindu Trinity, to whom is entrusted the work of creating the world." - BKS Iyengar
In this pose, the yogi sits using one leg as a crutch under the armpit, hence the name.

  Yogi's Sleeping Pose Nidra means sleep. Yoganidrasana is a state between sleep and wakefulness. It is also the name given to the sleep of Visnu at the end of a Yuga, an age of the world. In this pose, the legs are interlaced behind the back of the neck and the hands are clasped behind the back which rests on the ground. The legs form the Yogi's pillow and the back of his couch. The practice of this pose warms up the body very rapidly. It is therefore used by Yogis living in high altitudes to keep warm.
