Scorpion pose or Vrschikasana (vrsh-chih-KAHS-anna) offers us strength and flexibility. It is an inversion, a shoulder opener, and a backbend.
This asana helps us develop strength and flexibility along with patience and tenacity. As we practice opening the shoulders, we learn patience and respect of our edges because it takes a long time to open the shoulders.
The backbend portion of scorpion pose asks us to open the heart. We find humility as we learn this pose due to the combined demands of the asana.
