This pose is also known as the Revolved Side Angle Pose. It is not an advanced pose but requires a certain level of balance and stretching but the most important part would be the locking of your shoulder with the opposed knee before fully twisting your upper body and lifting your back leg.

Benefits of the Revolved Side Angle Pose:

  • Stretches your entire spine, legs and arms.

Step by Step:

  • You can get on Warrior I to get started.
