Revolved Head-to-Knee Pose
Parivrtta Jānu Sīrṣāsana
Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana (PAHR-ee-VREE-tah JAH-noo sheer-SHAH-suh-nuh) stretches the hamstrings, hips and spine, helping to relieve low-back pain and open the hips. It also stretches the shoulders and expands the chest, improving breathing capacity. The twist massages the abdominal organs, stimulating and improving digestion.
Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana calms the mind and helps to relieve anxiety and depression. As it relaxes the whole body, it can also reduce fatigue and insomnia.
Those with diarrhea, a pulled hamstring, or chronic injury to the hip, back, knee, or shoulder should avoid this pose.
