If you are a beginner and really looking for a spine twisting posture then you could always start with Vakrasana. This is a preparatory pose for Ardha Matsyendrasana.
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. Today in ‘Yoga and You’ Dhivya from Dhivyam yoga shows us How to do Vakrasana (Twisted Pose).
