Parivrtta Utkata Konasana is an ideal posture for cleansing and stimulating the body. It is thought to be beneficial on a holistic level for:
- Detoxifying the body and mind
- Increasing a sense of groundedness
- Empowering the mind
- Opening the heart
As the English name of this posture suggests, it is ideal for honoring the goddess or the femininity within. This cultivates strength and vivacity, and, combined with the releasing twist, can invigorate the body for new life and zest.
As well as opening the heart, like utkata konasana, parivrtta utkata konasana stimulates the spleen/sacral chakra, which helps to connect with sensuality and creativity. Balancing this area is said to help experience pleasure.
The mantra, Vam, can even be chanted while practicing this posture in order to enhance the benefits.
