The body assumes the shape of a hill in this Asana hence it is named Parvatasana. Those, who cannot practise Padmasana, can practise it in standing, stretched legs or in Vajrasana.

Position of Reediness

Sit in Padmasana. Sit erect and gaze in front.

Steps

Fold the hands (palms touching each other) and press them together on the chest as is praying.

Raise your hands towards sky keeping them in the same folded position above the head vertically.

While raising the hands, breathe in slowly and normally. Allow the hands to stretch to the maximum.

Retain this posture for some time.

While releasing, loosen your hands and come back to original position.

Relax for some time, then repeat again.

Benefits 

It is beneficial for obese persons though the abdominal muscles get stretched to their maximum. It reduces excess flesh around the waist and shapes the figure. Flabby flesh on the arms, especially above the elbow, reduces excess flesh around the waist and shapes the figure.

This makes spine flexible.

Visceroptosis and pain in backbone is removed.

It is beneficial in constipation and removes seminal weakness.

Note

Those having complaints of reeling sensation should not practise it.

Those, who cannot practise Padmasana, can practise it in standing, stretched legs or in Vajrasana.
