Yoga: The Seated Twist

Seated Twist, Hometown Yoga at Piedmont Orthopaedic Complex

According to Yoga Journal, The Seated Twist pose has many benefits:
  • Stimulates the liver and kidneys
  • Stretches the shoulders, hips, and neck
  • Energizes the spine
  • Stimulates the digestive fire in the belly
  • Relieves menstrual discomfort, fatigue, sciatica, and backache
  • Therapeutic for asthma and infertility
  • Traditional texts say that Ardha Matsyendrasana increases appetite, destroys most deadly diseases, and awakens kundalini.
For more information on The Seated Twist, please visit Rachel's Tip: With every inhalation, lift taller through your spine and with each exhalation, release deeper into the twist. Move with your breath, allowing the twisting movement to detoxify and revitalize your entire body. Rachel is an instructor and co-owner of Hometown Yoga in Macon Georgia.
