Twisting and Detoxification

Twisting postures create a "wringing" effect on the abdominal organs. This helps to flush the liver and other organs, directing blood and lymphatic fluid into the larger vessels of the cardiovascular system, eliminating toxins.

The abdominal muscles are the core prime movers in the twisting postures. Combine them with other muscular synergists of the twist. For example, in twisting siddhasana, the sternocleidomastoid, latissimus dorsi and triceps of one side assist the biceps and hamstrings of the other side to accentuate the twist.

Combine the actions of various muscles to create synergy in your posture. Contract the posture's synergists to lengthen the antagonists.

These illustrations demonstrate that contracting the rectus abdominus, iliopsoas, quadriceps, deltoids and biceps in prasarita padottanasana stretch the erector spinae, hamstring and gastrocnemius muscles.
