What Is Eka Janu Uttana Kriya?



From the Vajra Asana stance, the Eka-janu Uttana Kriya is a Single-Knee Lifting Action.  


  • On the tops of the legs, the hands can be put. hands down, or folded together at the breast in the Namaskara Mudra, a prayer-like gesture. 
  • Raise one leg as high as possible while practicing deep Sukha Pranayama, exerting significant pressure on the upper front of the foot. 
  • On the outgoing breath, lower the knee. Use the opposite knee on the following breath cycle. 
  • Try to maintain your back as straight as possible, with all of your weight falling onto your feet. 
  • At each sitting, do three or four rounds of this Single-KneeLift. 


If this causes any discomfort or agony, it may be essential to lay a pad or thin cushion under the feet.
