Visvamitra is a King in Indian mythology who is very proud, very aggressive, and victorious - the Flying Warrior. He and his army have never been defeated. Until one day, he comes to visit Vasistha the sage and gets defeated by an army that comes from Vasistha's cow. Furious, he wants to become a Sage himself. Unlike Vasistha who is so simple, Visvamitra finds it so hard to practice because he is such a complicated personality full of pride and anger. Eventually, after so many years, he became a Sage and his name is for this complicated and energetic Yoga pose. Vasisthasana is a Yoga pose named after Vasistha. It's the Side Plank pose. Simple and straightforward. Just like Visvamitra will not become a Sage without meeting Vasistha, you can not do Visvamitrasana without doing Side Plank.
