Yoga Asana for the Hands: The Scale


Complexity: Suitable for Intermediate Practitioners.

Duration: 10 to 15 seconds in total


The scale focuses on increasing wrist, stomach, and arm weight. Individuals with elbow, shoulder, ankle, or knee injuries should stop it. This posture can also be avoided if your hips or thighs are close.

You will divide the lift into two sections when you first start working with the size. 

  • Raise and lower your hips first, while keeping your crossed legs on the deck. If you want to make it smoother, use blocks to lift your arms.
  • Second, raise your crossed legs while keeping your hips on the ground. 


You'll eventually gain enough abdominal strength to be able to do the full-fledged scale pose, which looks like this:

  1. Begin by lying down in the lotus pose. Place your feet straight out in front of you and sit tall. Bend your leg and rotate your right thigh away from the hip. 
  2. Raise your lower leg with your hands and pass it forward until your right foot is atop your left thigh, keeping your right knee and foot the same distance from the floor. 
  3. Draw your left foot as close to your body as possible by rotating your left hip out. 
  4. Maintaining the same space between your left knee and foot on the surface, raise the leg with your hands and pull it up against your torso, placing your left foot atop your right hip to complete the lotus position.
  5. If you can't get into a lotus pose, you can hit the scale by crossing your thighs.
  6. With your fingers pointing upward, place your palms on the ground next to your hips. To aid in balance, splay your fingers outwards.
  7. Exhale deeply, push your palms into the carpet, tighten your abs, and lift your legs and hips off the ground. Continue to take long, steady breaths.
  8. Suspend yourself for three seconds in the breeze.
  9. Exhale and lower the legs and hips to the ground to detach.
  10. Reverse the phenomenon by crossing the legs in the opposite direction.
