Preparation for Svarga Dvijasana – Yoga India
If I had to choose the most beautiful name for a yoga position, then Bird in Paradise (Svarga Dvijasana) would be in the top five. Why such a name for this item? Interpretations are different.
Book Yoga TTC from India.
One of them says that it is the name of a tropical flower that has an asymmetrical shape and beautiful colors. His appearance resembles a flying bird. However, if we consider the etymology of the name of this asana, then Svarga means ‘paradise’ or ‘heaven’ and Dvija means ‘twice born’.
It is the birds that are considered to be born twice. First as an egg and second as a bird.
In my opinion, this is one of those positions where the way of entering asana is as important as the position itself . Entry is a metaphor for the first birth. To properly make the first part, you need a solid foundation, smooth movement and perfect balance.
Asana, however, is seen as the second birth . At this stage, you grow and flourish. With such a beautiful message, let’s look at which parts of the body need to be prepared so that Svarga Dvijasana is your favorite position .
What you need?
Open hips, flexible arms, strong thighs, stretched backs of legs, perfect balance and perfect concentration.
Where to start?
Dynamic Sun Greetings are an integral part of every practice. Perform Surya Namaskar A and B several times .
Step 1 – Trikonasana – we open the hips, stretch our legs and build a strong foundation
Start in Tadasan. Inhale with your right foot and step backwards . Set your feet a little less than shoulder width. Point your right foot to the right and position your left foot slightly inwards.
If you combined your feet now, the heel of the right foot would be exactly in the middle of the left . Don’t let your hips twist behind your foot, pull your left hip back. Begin the triangle positions with exhalation, make a slope and grab your right toe with your right hand .
Enter the position with a relaxed knee . If you can – straighten your knee, if you can’t – leave it bent. Work on opening your chest now. Take the left shoulder back and open the cage.
Try not to collapse, reach up with your left hand and look at it. Extend both sides of the body. Stay in this position for 5 breaths . Perform the same position to the other side .
Step 2 – Baddha Parsvakonasana – we open the cage, stretch our arms, open our hips and stretch our legs

Open the cage and move your left hand behind your head. Drishti’s hand. Stay in this position for 3 breaths , then put your right hand under your right thigh and your left hand reach back behind your back. Put your hands together.
If you can’t connect your hands, take advantage of ithelp strap . Open your chest intensely, rotating your left shoulder back , look up. Remain another 3 breaths and change page.
Step 3 – Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana – we train balance and concentration, stretch our legs and open our hips
Start with your legs together. Transfer body weight to your left leg. Grasp the big toe of your right foot with your right hand and place your left hand on your hip. Inhale, lift your leg up with your knee bent, keep your back straight.
Exhale, move your leg to the right side and start straightening your knee . In this position, the most important thing is that you keep your back straight . If you can’t straighten your knees, leave them bent or straighten them with the strap.
Rotate your right thigh outwards and pull your leg high up. Look at the ground to the left. Push the floor with your foot. Stay in this position for 5 breaths and change page.
Make an attempt – Svarga Dvijasana
Align your feet slightly wider than your hips. Lower your hips and put your right hand under your right thigh and your left hand reach back behind your back. Put your hands together . You already know this binding from the position of Baddha Parsvakonasana.
Transfer your weight to your left leg and slowly move your right foot to the left. The foot still touches the ground . Keep your stomach tight. Start straightening your left knee and rise up . Straighten your back, look straight ahead.
If you can, straighten your right knee. Remember that you can stay at any stage . Build a position from scratch.
Focus on balance . It is about her in this position. Balance is a state of mind – it’s self-acceptance. Equivalent positions begin to come out when you stop fighting yourself. If you fall – don’t worry , just repeat the asana.
If you stop frustrating on the mat, then one day, when you stumble in your life, you say: “Hey, I’ve fallen more than once. Just get up and do your job again. ” And that’s what yoga is all about. Namaste!
