Virasana, and its extensions into Supta Virasana, are excellent conditioners of lower limbs. Supta virasana is often used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions, and is also a preparation for back arches. Difficulty in Virasana can be due to limitation at the hip joint, length of the hamstrings, stiffness in the knee, shortness and hardness of the calves or stiffness in the ankles .
