This asana is called as Vakrasana or Twisted Pose because the spine is twisted in practicing this asana. “Vakra” means ‘twisted’ in Sanskrit. In the Vakrasana, the upper part of the body is completely turned and twisted. The spine, the muscles of hands, the legs and the back are stretched. Yoga expert Keerthana from Rutland gate studio shows us how to do Vakrasana (Twisted Pose).
