"Astavakrasana" is named after the sage Astavakra Muni (Ashtabakra)
(then known as Subrata Muni) who was insulted by Indra. The muni was so enraged that he developed 8 curves in his body (Ashtabakra Muni means a sage with 8 curved cripples, probably kyphoscoliotic).
Ashtabakra Muni was blessed by lord Shiva after many years of tapas and meditation.
