Bharadvajasana is a seated twisting yoga pose as well as a binding pose.

One of the reasons that I like this yoga pose so much, especially when grabbing my foot from behind my back, is that it tends to “release” my lower back. (Another good pose for “releasing the lower back” this is triangle pose.)

In Bharadvajasana one leg is in hero position with the shin folded to the outside of the thigh. The other leg is in lotus with the top of the foot on top of the other thigh.

    Like all twists in yoga, Bharadvajasana helps to relieve stress by “squeezing out” the anxiety and negative emotions of daily life, just like wringing out a sponge. It restores balance and equanimity to mind, body, and spirit — leaving the practitioner in a calmer, more graceful state of mind, even off the mat.
