Day 28 Parivrtta Sukhasana  

Easy Pose with Twist





Parivrtta Sukhasana (PAH-ruh-VREE-tah soo-KAHS-uh-nuh) 

The Sanskrit name for this pose comes from three words:

"Parivrtta” — meaning “revolved”

”Sukha” — meaning “easy,” “comfortable,” or “joy”

(from “su,” meaning “good,” and “kha,” meaning “space”)

"Asana" — meaning "pose"

Easy Pose, called “Sukhasana” in Sanskrit, is a basic seated yoga posture. This variation, which includes a twist, provides a greater stretch to the body, relieving tension and helping to prepare the practitioner for other activities. 

t usually goes by various English names, sometimes referred to as “Seated Twist,” “Easy Twist,” “Simple Cross-Legged Twist,” or other similar variations. This pose is suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners to seasoned practitioners.

If your hips are tight, try practicing the pose while seated on a block or bolster. Practicing this pose regularly will help to open your hips further and bring your spine into correct alignment.


Parivrtta Sukhasana stretches the hips, knees, and ankles. It increases flexibility throughout the spine, shoulders, and chest. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety. Twisting stimulates and tones your abdominal organs, including the kidneys and digestive organs. This helps with detoxification, which boosts energy and improves your overall health.
