Parivrtta parsvakonasana (revolved side angle pose). This class will be an ideal introduction to the twisted standing pose parivrtta parsvakonasana. In addition to consolidating the basics, it also trouble shoots some common problems that may be encountered when you are learning this pose. Parivrtta parsvakonasana features a deep lateral rotation of the vertebral column and its associated muscles, tendons and ligaments. This twisting movement is great for releasing your back and improving the mobility of your spine. The pose also requires you to maintain your balance whilst twisting. Initially this can be challenging for many people. For this reason a chair is used in the class to allow you to separate the twisting component of parivrtta parsvakonasana from its requirement of balance. With the added stability of a chair you are able to apply key techniques and explore the spinal twist with improved control. These insights can then be brought to your unassisted version of the pose.
