Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham Bangalore

This is a seated position and is named after the sage Mariachi. First sit on the floor with the legs stretched out in front of you. Bend your left knee and place the left foot flat on the floor and the calf should touch the back of the thigh. Exhale and turn the spine ninety degree to the left and bring the right arm so it is over the left thigh. The right shoulder should be beyond the left knee, stretched out forwards. The left arm is behind the back. Turn the spine more to the left and stay here for thirty seconds breathing easily. You can try to clasp the hands behind the back if possible. Then come out of the pose and repeat it on the other side.

PRECAUTION: Pregnancy and who have undergone abdominal surgery should not do.
