Twisting poses have a long list of benefits. This category of poses neutralizes the spine after bends and backbends, refreshes blood in the organs, and improve posture. Unfortunately, beginners often perceive poses such as Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose) as too challenging and may not execute them with whole-hearted intention and focus, which strips the twisting pose of its inherent benefits.
An important technique to learn for twists is an even distribution of the work required. The tendency for most of us is to twist where it's easy and avoid twisting where it's not—which overworks flexible parts of the spine makes them more prone to injury.
Opening yourself to twists and accepting their challenges will improve your ability to practice ekagrata, or one-pointed focus, and cultivate your awareness and intelligence to create a twist that expands mind and body.
