Parvatasana or the Mountain Pose is a basic asana in yoga. Parvata stands for Mountain while aasana refers to Posture. Just like the name, this aasana gives benefits as like a mountain – strong and stable. It helps to stretch the entire upper body muscles. Mountain pose also helps in curing a couple of digestion problems like acidity and indigestion. And it can be performed by everyone except for those suffering from a knee issue.



 How to perform Parvatasana   

  • Sit on your mat in Padmasana (as shown in the picture above) or Sukhasana or vajrasana. 
  • Join your palm together in namaskar position. The chest should be held forward, neck straight and chin parallel to the ground.  
  • Now, inhale and raise your palms upward in a stretched position. Keep hands close to your ears and back straight.
  • You can either keep your eyes open and gaze at a certain point or close your eyes.
  • Hold this position for 20-30 seconds, and release with an exhalation, first bringing down the palms and placing on the respective sides. Relax. Repeat it 2-3 times.



  • Parvatasna is proven to be very good for minor back-related issues.
  • Tones the core muscles and improves the health of internal organs.
  • Helps to improve posture and balance.
  • It sets right respiratory disorders including asthma.
  • As you stretch your arms straight, your triceps and biceps receive good work out, thus helping them tone.
  • Parvatasana helps people who have a sedentary lifestyle or desk jobs.
  • It improves one’s ability to stay focused.



Severe knee problem patients should avoid practising parvatasana.
