  • ‘Parivrtta’ refers to rotated or twisted; ‘Parsva’ means Side and ‘Kona’ is angle. So, ‘Rotated Side angle stretch’
  • This is an amazing twist for the spine as well as a good pose to train the breathing muscles and the overall lung capacity. 
  • It places a beneficial stress on the abdominal organs as well and that aids in digestion.
  • If one finds it hard to keep the back heel on the floor, you can leave the ball of the foot on the floor and keep the heel in the air.
