The best environment to practice this asana (or any Yoga pose) is a clean place where you can focus and let go of yourself. For some, it might be in the wilderness and others in a yoga studio. I find it best to practice this asana in a clean and quiet empty room where I'm free of distractions (like a yoga studio). Finding peace and awareness in this asana was hard at first. I had to focus on my steady breathing and engaging my bundhas. After a few breaths of just clearing my thoughts and enjoying the moment I was able to my bliss.
