The postures feature twisting movements that massage the internal organs—liver, kidney, gallbladder, to name a few—and encourage deep breathing.
2 of 3 | Seated Twist (modified marichyasana)
Sit up straight in the middle of your mat pressing both sit bones down to the floor
and extend your left leg straight, flexing your toes. Bend your right knee, bringing your right heel in toward your groin, and place
your right palm (or fingertips) on the floor just behind your tailbone. Bring left elbow around right knee, twisting at midback and
raise left hand to the sky. Inhale deeply to elongate the spine and look over right shoulder. On each exhale, twist deeper, keeping
your shoulders back and down and your spine straight. Hold the pose for 1 minute, switch legs (and switch sides) and repeat.
