Vamadevasana I (Pose Dedicated to the Sage, Vamadeva I) registers as 15* on BKS Iyengar’s 60* scale of difficulty.
BKS Iyengar instructs the practitioner to place the left leg in Mulabandhasana and the right leg in Padmasana. If, like me, Mulabandhasana isn’t quite accessible, try sitting on your left foot instead or placing your left foot in close to your pelvis.
Vamadevasana I bears similarities to Bharadvajasana, but placing your foot underneath your pelvis, challenges your balance in this pose! If Bhardvajasana is in your practice, give Vamadevasana I a shot and observe the not-so-subtle differences a subtle adjustment can make.
