Revolved Side Angle Pose helps with so with many things, including digestion, lower back pain, osteoporosis, sciatica and infertility. It strengthens the legs, knees and ankles while stretching the length of the body.
HOW TO DO IT: Begin in Mountain Pose (Tadasana), with big toes touching, heels slightly apart. Step forward with your left foot three-and-a-half to four feet. Turn your right foot out slightly. Your heels should be in a straight line. Firm your thighs. Twist your torso to the left until you're looking out over your left leg. Your right heel will most likely lift off the ground. Your feet should now be parallel. Bend your left knee until your left thigh is parallel with the floor. Your left knee should be in line with your left ankle. Tilt your pelvis forward to lengthen the spine. Allow your right knee to lower to the floor or ground down in your right heel, keeping the right leg extended and actively engaged. Listen to your body and do what feels best. Try to turn further to the left and bring your hands to Salutation Seal in front of your chest. Lower your torso and deepen the stretch by letting your right arm rest on the outside of your left leg. Your torso should follow the line of your right leg. Press into your left leg with your right arm to deepen the stretch. Lift from your chest. Allow your head to stay in a neutral position or look out over your left shoulder. Hold for 30 seconds to a minute. Gently return to starting position. Rest a few breaths. Repeat on the other side. Remember to breathe.
