Revolved Head –To-Knee Pose








  •     Sit on the floor with your torso upright and your legs wide
  •     Bend your left knee and snug the heel into your left groin
  •     Slightly bend your right knee and slide the heel a few inches toward the right buttock
  •     Exhale, lean to the right, and press the back of your right shoulder against the inside of your right knee
  •     Lay your right forearm on the floor inside your right leg, palm facing up
  •     Lengthen the right side of your torso along the inside of the right thigh
  •     Turn your right palm towards the inside edge of the foot and take hold of it
  •     Thumb on the top of the foot, fingers on the sole
  •     Press the left femur firmly to the floor, as you inhale and slowly extend your right knee
  •     Keep the back of your shoulder connected to the inner knee as you extend it; you’ll find that your torso is drawn out by the straightening knee
  •     When your knee is straight, twist your torso towards the ceiling
  •     Inhale your left arm straight up toward the ceiling, lean it back slightly
  •     With another inhale, sweep it behind your left ear
  •     Take hold of the outside edge of the right foot
  •     Press the elbows away from each other, using them like a crank to help twist the upper torso further
  •     Turn your head to look at the ceiling
  •     Hold for a minute
  •     To come out, first untwist your torso
  •     Without coming to upright, sweep it to the left midway between the legs
  •     Inhale and lift to an upright position
  •     Remember not to come up directly from the twisted position
  •     Repeat these steps to the other side for the same length of time

Good to know    

  •     It’s better to keep the lower shoulder in contact with the inner knee
  •     Don’t lose the contact in order to straighten the knee completely
  •     Don’t attempt the pose if you have diarrhea
