Marichyasana (Marichi’s Pose) – Overview


    • We found the Marichyasana poses presented inconsistently among different sources; we’ve presented them as they are found traditionally in Ashtanga and Iyengar sources.
    • Here we cover Marichi I & III. For an extremely in-depth article on preparing for Marichi II, see Roger Cole’s article here.
    • “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 vigorous asana practice.” – Richard Rosen
    • See Cautions for twist alignment and SI joints.
