Revolved Head-To-Knee pose is a tricky seated sidebend that stretches the sides of the body and the backs of the legs and opens up the hips. It’s kissing cousins with Head-To-Knee pose, which also stretches the calves and hamstrings and externally rotates the hips. I recommend that, unless you are very flexible, you ensure that you are fully warmed up before practicing this pose.
