To find a pose
- Open the Poses Window by clicking on “Tap here to add poses” area of the sequence or anywhere near the pose cards in the sequence
- Locate the pose you would like to add either by (1) sorting through pose categories or (2) searching by pose name.
1. Sorting by pose categories
- First choose if you are looking for a pose, technique, mudra or other image.
- Then select the body position in relation to the ground – Standing, Kneeling (on the knees or hands and knees), Prone (on the stomach), Supine (on the back), Seated, On the side, Inversion, Seated in a chair, Arm balance, Leg balance.
- Then select the directional movement of the spine – Start (neutral position), Forward bend, Back Bend, Twist, Lateral end or Axial Extension (elongation along the spine).
- Then scroll down to look for your pose (to scroll down use the wheel on your mouse or move your finger down on your mousepad).
If you don’t find the pose you need, we might have it in a different category than you thought. Widen your search by deselecting one of the categories or search by pose name. (For example, we have Downward facing dog categorized as Kneeling, Axial Extension pose.)
2. Finding by pose name
You can always find the pose with English or Sanskrit name. Type the name into Find by text field.
Keep in mind that sometimes poses have different names in different traditions and there are different spelling variations. So it’s best to put fewer letters into the Search field. For example, instead of searching for “Downward facing dog” just enter “dog” and then pick the pose you need.
