Janu Shirshasana

The term Janu Shirshasana has been derived from the Sanskrit words 'Janu', meaning 'knee', and 'Shirash', meaning 'head'. As the name suggests, the asana focuses on the two body parts. As you perform Janu Shirshasana, one of the legs is folded at the knee, while the other one is stretched out at the front. As for the head, it rests on the knee of the stretched leg. One of the most important asanas (postures) of yoga, Janu Shirshasana is mainly aimed at helping the body stretch properly. Apart from enhancing the flexibility of the body, the asana helps open up the back as well as the hamstrings.
