Hi Yogi,

This Tuesday I bring you a Marichi pose name after the great Sage Marichi.  Marichi means ray of light.  He is one of the many (7-12) seers or lords of creation.

This is Marichyasana I, the twisting version, there is also a forward bend version which is the full pose.

It is a nice seated twist because one leg his bent and one is straight and the buttocks are level. Some seated twists are more difficult because the sit bones are not level.

You use the strength of the legs to gain length in your torso before you turn. And you use your hand and arm to create more twist.

Learn and Enjoy!
