      for western practitioners many Teachers suggest to avoid wester people to perform the ‘king’ and ‘queen ì asana.a famous article called king and queen no more, strongly suggests to avaoid these asanas that not well performed fon western bodies can cause permanent damage. an alternatibve can be viparita karani.
