Jathara Parivartanasana - Ab turn pose
|This supine abdominal twist is good for all ages, and popular for relaxation. Girl Scout class, 2014.|
The twist tones lower back and abdominal muscles, and is commonly said to reduce excess belly fat by stretching into muscles typically surrounded by stored fat, mobilizing the deposits. Bloodflow increases to the abdominal organs including pancreas, spleen, liver and intestines, which helps with gastrointestinal concerns, and is recommended for aiding digestion.
