Revolved goddess pose is considered very beneficial for the physical body in a number of ways:
- Strengthens the gluteal and adductor muscles
- Stretches the abductor muscles
- Relieves upper body tension
Some people believe that the stimulation of the organs in the twist can also aid the body’s natural detoxification process.
It is important in revolved goddess pose to keep the knees stacked over the ankles and pointing in the same alignment as the toes. To modify this posture, the gaze can be taken to the floor in order to make it easier for the neck. If the twist is uncomfortable, goddess pose should be practiced instead.
