WHY TO PRACTICE PARIVRTTA PARSVAKONASANA?
This strong twisting pose is also called Revolved Side Angle Pose and here are some good reasons to include it into your daily practice:
- Strengthens + stretches legs, knees and ankles
- Stretches spine, chest lungs and shoulders
- Improves balance
- Improves digestion
- Rejuvenates abdominal organs and spinal column
- Increases stamina

If you have neck problems, don’t force yourself to look at the hand above your head, you can look straight ahead or down at the floor.
If you have difficulties with finding your balance in this pose, you can put a support under your heel or use a wall for support.
You can start practicing this pose with hands in Anjali Mudra, without straightening the arm, and instead pressing the elbow against the knee and the palms against each other creating the twist.
You can also drop your knee if you feel like.
