This asana is dedicated to the sage Koundinya. There is a version that sage Koundinya himself was created by Parvati for the purpose of extracting and fermenting the sap of the wild date palm and thus supplying the wants of gods and men in the matter of intoxicating drinks.
The name comes from the Sanskrit words eka meaning "one", pada meaning "foot", and koundinya is the name of the sage, (आसन) meaning "posture" or "seat".
