(puh-ree-VREET-tuh JAH-nu SHAS-ah-nah)

Also called:

  • Parivrtta Janu Shirshasana Pose
  • Seated sideways Bend Pose


  • Intermediate



Benefits: Great side stretch! The pose also lengthens your hamstrings and opens your hips and shoulders

How it's done:

  • Begin in a sitting position with legs extended
  • Bend your left knee and place your left foot as close to your groin as possible
  • Raise arms overhead
  • Exhale and lower your side over your left thigh, bring your left elbow to the inside of the left knee
  • Bring your right arm up and over your head, grasping your foot and right hand
  • With each breath open your chest more and more.  
  • Eyes closed with chin pointed to the ceiling

For this demonstration, Yogic Fitness with The Art of Living takes us through this pose.
