Parsvottanasana, or the pyramid pose has many benefits including hamstring stretching in a forward fold, focus, balancing, shoulder and wrist stretching and sometimes calf stretching.
Richard Freeman calls it the king of poses. It is part of the ashtanga standing poses, and is practiced in every class (of primary and second series). It is one of the best standing poses, helpful to prepare for other standing balancing poses such as utthita hasta padangusthasana.
It is safe for most people to practice, and can bring great benefits of mind and body to all. Doron shows here different options for different level students.
As always, please consult a doctor before you do any of the practices shown or offered on the Doron Yoga Channel.
