Marichyasana (Marichi’s Pose) III (Twist) – Overview


  • Marichyasana poses are presented inconsistently among different sources; here they are shown as they are typically presented in Ashtanga and Iyengar sources.
  • “Marichyasana III is a basic sitting twist. It will get you ready for its more challenging cousins (Marichyasana I, II and IV) as well as help relieve your back after a vigorousasana” – Richard Rosen
  • For an extremely in-depth article on preparing for Marichi II, see Roger Cole’s article here.
