If you have trouble bringing
your knees together …
Try placing a block on its narrow setting between your knees.
This will provide stability to your low back and sacrum. Situate the block before you twist; as you revolve, squeeze the prop, especially with your upper leg. This action enables a deeper rotation in your low back. As with the standard pose, with each exhale remember to spin your belly away from your knees.
