Posted on July 29 2019

Pronunciation: (purr-vo-tahn-AHS-ah-nuh)


Also called:

  • Reverse Plank
  • Eastern Intense Stretch Pose
  • Inclined Plane Pose

Benefits: This is a whole body stretch - legs, chest, throat, and arms. It particularly stretches the muscles used in Chaturanga. 

How it's done:

  • Start in a seated position with your back straight, and with your feet stretched out in front of you. 
  • Place your hands behind your hips with your fingertips pointed towards your toes. (Our model in the photograph is demonstrating a modification.  Fingers pointed to your toes is preferred.)
  • On an inhale, lift your hips high, while pressing your feet into the floor.
