Revolved Half Moon Pose or Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana (PAHR-ee-VREE-tah ARD-uh chan-DRAHS-uh-nuh) comes from four words: “Parivrtta” — meaning “revolved”,”Ardha” — meaning “half”, “Chandra” — meaning “moon”, “Asana” — meaning “pose”. Is a standing yoga pose that combines the challenge of balancing with the detoxifying benefits of a twist. It’s an advanced variation of the pose, Half Moon ( Ardha Chandrasana), which builds mental and physical strength.
This standing pose, a variation of Half Moon, involves rotating your torso, which stimulates the abdominal organs. It also opens your chest as you elongate and extend your arms, and hones your focus as you find your balance. Once you’ve mastered the stability required of this pose, you’ll reap its heavenly reward: energy radiating from your core and extending out to your limbs.
