RAVI helps you deepen into your twist by using Anchor and Torque
Stretching the fascia and the connective tissue of the spine and torso.
Compress and massage the organs helps rinse fresh fluids into the tissues.
Anchor: as an anchor to hold part of the body to the ground
Torque: as a torque to press part of the body not on the ground towards the ground
Ground: as a hug to wrap the body without the aspect of helping to hold the shape
Support: under the body as a mold-able prop to support part of the pose
If the knees don’t fall completely to the ground you can add a RAVI along the upper thigh. When RAVI is placed closer to the hips/center of the body there is more of a sense of grounding/hug. The further the RAVI is moved away from the center – towards the knee, the sensation will become more torque like. Once the torque presses the legs to touch the ground, the RAVI takes the roll of anchor again.
Torque implies that there is space to move and Anchor implies that there is a connection to the ground that is held.
