Revolved Extended Side Angle Pose (Parivritta Parsvokonasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Revolved Extended Side Angle Pose

Revolved Extended Side Angle Pose is an intermediate standing twist that requires the Yogi to have a fair amount of flexibility. Using a block at first can help achieve the full expression without compromising alignment. Revolved Extended Side Angle Pose can be used to stretch the legs, knees, and ankles as well as improve balance and stamina.

To do Revolved Extended Side Angle Pose, begin in a low lunge begin in a standing posture and move into a lunge, bringing the right foot forward and rest the hand on the hips. Next, twist to the left hand to the outside of the right knee, keeping the arm straight and extend the right arm overhead. The entire torso should be twisted to the right in this posture. Try a block under the hand to help bring the floor up until flexible enough for the full expression.
