Scale Pose

Tulāsana (Sanskrit: तुलासन), Balance Pose, Dolasana (Swing Pose), Tolasana (Scale Pose), or Utthita Padmasana (Raised Lotus Pose) is an asana. The name comes from the Sanskrit words tula (तुला) meaning "balance", and asana (आसन, āsana) meaning "posture" or "seat". From Padmasana the practitioner with the hands placed either side of the hips raises the entire torso, legs, and feet using the arms and shoulders.
