Two knee spinal twist pose primarily releases tension from the body. Additional benefits include:
- Massages and stimulates the internal organs
- Improves digestion
- Stretches the chest, shoulders, hips and whole of the back
- Alleviates stiffness by encouraging mobility in the spine
This posture should be attempted with caution by those with severe lower back problems.
Two knee spinal twist pose can be modified during pregnancy by placing a pillow between the knees for extra support. A pillow can also be placed under the knees if they do not touch the ground. To go deeper into the twist, the knees can be brought closer to the underarm.
