10 Difficult Yoga Poses And Their Characteristics

{getToc} $title={Table of Contents}

This beautiful asana requires excellent strength in the chaturanga position, great mobility of the hips and considerable twisting of the trunk.

This is once again an asymmetrical asana, balanced on the hands. How is it done?

  • The start is similar to that of Eka Pada Galavasana. The palms of the hands, however, must be positioned to the side, as in the lateral crow
  • If the crossed leg is the right one, you will have to point your palms on the left side, by twisting the trunk
  • Push your butt slightly upwards so that you can rest the sole of your crossed foot on the triceps
  • Shift your weight forward so that your ground foot comes off the mat. Once your leg is raised, move it to the side and straighten it.

Asanas to master to perform this pose:

  • Akarna Dhanurasana or Ardha Kapotasana (for the opening of the neck)
  • Astavakrasana
  • Kakasana
  • Eka Pada Koundinyasana I


With this long list of advanced poses, we hope we have given you new stimuli for your practice. Whether it’s to give you variety or to test yourself, we’re sure you haven’t tried some of these poses (or their variations) yet, and they will offer you new challenges.

Clearly, these they are not all advanced yoga positions: there are many asanas in this discipline. We have chosen those that, in our opinion, are the most iconic and fun, albeit very difficult.

This article is to be considered as mere inspiration and not as a substitute for a yoga teacher: the poses presented are very complex and should only be performed after a very thorough warm-up and by expert practitioners. Otherwise, the risk of getting hurt is decidedly high.

If you are eager to learn these poses, but your level is still intermediate, contact a teacher and work together with him/her to be able to perform these asanas very early.

Good practice!
