Dhruvasana

How to perform Dhruvasana

In standing, check your nostrils and start with the nostril that is most active. If it is the right side, bring your foot up to rest on your left hip as you would do for Padmasana. Now bring your hands in front of your chest in Namaste pose and move them over your head.

Repeat the same with the other leg.

Advanced Variation of Dhruvasana

If you want to go more advanced, you can bring your arms to your back, either stretched out with the fingers interlaced or in Namaste position, and bend forward with your back straight.

Benefits of Dhruvasana

Dhruvasana strengthens the leg muscles and of course makes you get used to balancing on one leg. It helps you stay flexible.


Through the stretch, your respiratory system gets room to breathe deeply and you can take in more oxygen. In this way the yoga pose improves your concentration.


Your inner organs are stimulated when practicing Dhruvasana which helps toxins and air which is stuck in the bowels to be released.


Additionally to all these benefits, this yoga posture also regulates the blood flow in the body.


For adults it is sometimes difficult to bring the leg in this position. children often are much more flexible and really enjoy this exercise and its advanced position.

Focus Points

Balance is a key point in this exercise and you may not find it very easy.


Keep your body weight on your toes, not on your heels and continue breathing deeply.
If you are doing the advanced position, it is important to keep your back as straight as possible.

Tips and Help

If you have difficulties bringing your leg up or balancing, first practice Manu Asana and then continue to this pose.
