Dario Calvaruso Nakrasana

samasthiti as the image of samādhi

If there is a posture which mostly symbolises Yoga is the pādāṅguṣṭha samasthiti (standing firmly upright on the tiptoe)*

pādāṅguṣṭha = on the tiptoe; which symbolises “aplomb, self-assurance and achievement”.

sama =  balance,  neutral, complete, equanimity,  imperturbability.

sthiti =  standing firmly upright.

 

Samasthiti is the image  of samādhi (abstract meditation).

sama = imperturbable

ādhi = thought

*Note: Don’t called it samasthitiḥ (wrong typed samasthitihi) unless is the declension for the feminine singular nominative case.

The dvyāṅga-makarāsana (two limbs crocodile pose)

The dvyāṅga-makarāsana (two limbs crocodile) is the caturāṅga makarāsana at the extreme. It emphasises the full engagement of the upper body (arm, chest and core  rather than shoulders). If the elbows are kept at 90° their no strain on the shoulder and wrist’s joints. The body is not supported by the elbows but by the whole-body-strength. As the  caturāṅga makarāsana is frequently wrongly called caturāṅga daṇḍāsana it is also important to distinguish the two. The caturāṅga makarāsana (or the four limbs crocodile pose) has the elbows at 90°  and the body is parallel to the floor.  While the  caturāṅga daṇḍāsana (or the four limbs stuff pose)  has straighten elbows/arms and it is inclined from the shoulder down towards the feet). The most common mistake in the caturāṅga makarāsana is creating a 75-45°angle  on the elbows which bring heaviness on the shoulders and wrists and gradually deteriorate the joints.
