Remember that with all yoga poses you should listen to your own body and if you feel any discomfort or unease stop practicing and seek assistance from a yoga and/or medical practitioner.
Danda means staff. Asana is literally translated as ‘seat’ but is general understood as ‘pose/posture’.
This pose can be found in most Hatha classes and is often used as a transitory pose in between other poses, to connect back with the breath.
This pose strengthens your back and improves posture, as well as opening the chest and stretching the shoulders.
Care should be taken for contraindications such as wrist or back injury.
