This variation of Eka Pada Rajakapotasana is a potent posture that is rich with challenges, and should not be attempted by the novice practitioner or anyone who cannot sit properly in the preparatory variations pictured below for at least 2 minutes without discomfort.
From position B, simply slide the foot up the inner forearm to the crook of the elbow and reach the left hand toward the head. Then take the right arm behind the head and clasp the hands. (Watch the video below for the transition.) Your pelvis may have shifted during the course of this movement, so recheck your posture once you have your bind. Steer the hipbones straight ahead, lift the chest, and press the head against the arms. Feel the energizing tension created along the central axis of the body.
