Bound revolved crescent lunge on the knee is a more accessible variation
of the similar posture, bound revolved crescent lunge, because it
requires less strength in the legs to hold and is easier to balance with the knee on the ground.
Bound revolved crescent lunge on the knee primarily stretches the spine through the extension and twist of the posture. Additional benefits of bound revolved crescent lunge on the knee include:
- Stimulates the kidneys
- Stretches the shoulders

To modify the pose, cushioning may be placed under the knee to ease the pressure. It can also be practiced without the bind, or holding a strap between the hands in order to improve the reach.
