The revolved head-to-knee pose works wonders for your breathing as well as your digestion says Kamala Venkat
Parivrtta janu sirsasana is a revolved forward bending posture. It is a variation on the asymmetrical forward bend, janu sirsasana. It is considered a calming and soothing asana with significant benefits for the mind as well as the body. It also works to stimulate the chakras, improving the flow of prana.
The name for this asana comes from the Sanskrit parivrtta, meaning “revolved,” janu, meaning “knee,” sirsa, meaning “head,” and asana, meaning “pose.” The English name for this asana is revolved head-to-knee pose.
