Yoga Pose of the Week-Bharadvajasana Twist 8/2/2010

The pose I selected this week is Bharadvajasana, which is a wonderful twisting pose. I am craving twists so that I can focus on my digestion after a week of poor eating. This pose also have nice benefits for the neck and shoulders and after a long plane ride, this felt wonderful.

Here are the benefits to this delicious twist:
-Relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and back
-Helps keep the spine and shoulders supple
-Eases a painful, stiff,sprained or fused lumbar spine
-Reduces discomfort in the dorsal spine area
-Increases the flexibility of the back and hips
-Massages abdominal organs, improves digestion
-Reduces stress
-Wonderful for the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, carpal tunnel, and sciatica.
