PARIVRTTA PARSVAKONASANA IS BOTH A TWIST AND A STANDING POSE. TWO STORIES take place
simultaneously here: lunging forward and turning the torso. The main story in this pose is the
combined action of turning the shoulders in one direction and the pelvis in the other; the connection
between the shoulders and the pelvis turns the spine. Press the upper arm into the thigh to create a
leveraging force that rotates the torso toward the front leg. At the same time, externally rotate the
rear hip and leg to tum the lower body in the other direction. This produces a coiling effect on the
vertebral column. As with the warrior poses, Parivrtta Parsvakonasana has the front hip and knee
flexing to produce a sense of forward movement, while the back hip and knee extend to constrain
this momentum. Combine the leveraging forces of the extremities with the rotational force
produced by the abdominal oblique muscles to tum the torso and spine. The skeletal system is
divided into the axial and appendicular skeletons, with the appendicular skeleton being further
divided into the arms and shoulder girdle (upper section) and the legs and pelvic girdle (lower
section). The axial skeleton comprises the vertebral column and thorax. just as the earth revolves
around its axis, when you connect the upper and lower appendicular skeletons, as in this pose, you
can rotate the body around its axis-the vertebral column
