Marichi’s Pose С or Marichyasana C (muh-ree-chee-AHS-uh-nu) is the third of four poses dedicated to the Sage Marichi. The seated twist offers a deep stretch throughout the back, ribs, and shoulders. It also keeps the intervertebral disks—those little jelly-filled “doughnuts” between your vertebrae—supple.
Marichyasana C activates the three lower chakras—the muladhara (root chakra), svadhisthana (sacral chakra), and manipura (solar plexus chakra)—to cultivate a sense of security, stability, and self-confidence.
