Viranchyasana II (Pose Dedicated to Brahma, II)

Viranchyasana II (Pose Dedicated to Brahma, II) registers as 10* on BKS Iyengar’s 60* scale of difficulty in Light on Yoga.

Viranchyasana II is the same as Viranchyasana I except for one variation: the leg that was in half Padmasana in Viranchyasana I is now in half Virasana. Practitioners who have difficulty with the half Padmasana leg in Viranchyasana I may want to explore Viranchyasana II as a less strenuous pose.

While both of these yoga poses present plenty of challenges, which of the two feels more accessible to you?
