Parivrtta Uttanasana

Revolved Standing Forward Bend Pose

Asana: Parivrtta Uttanasana/Revolved Standing Forward Bend.  Standing tall reach up, out and over, hang there for a moment, then grab the outside of your feet, if you can, inhale, and on the exhale deeply twist the torso to the R, facing up.  Release any strain in neck.  Remain there inhaling/extending spine, exhaling/increasing the twist.  Do other side.  Feel your connection to earth through soul of feet, and look up to heaven as you hang, oddly suspended, in perfect, twisted, balance.

Health Notes:  This Pose lubricates internal organs with its deep twisting.  It also lengthens hamstrings, side and back muscles.
