Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana, more commonly known as Sundial Pose, is a beautiful hip opener, side bend, and a twist.
When completed, the pose itself resembles a sundial. The leg over the shoulder poised straight up resembles the gnomon, which is the part of the sundial that catches the light and marks the shadow to indicate the time.
Enjoy the chance to practice all the deep actions necessary to navigate this striking pose. We show you step-by-step several different ways to come into the pose and enjoy its quiet elegance.
Just like actual sundials, there are many variations to practice and they all have the ability to capture the essence of this timeless pose.
Play with creating your own rendition of a sundial and slip into a sunny spot for some great fun!

If the back is rounded to get the leg over the shoulder, try to arch the back to straighten it and give your leg clearance so it can have space to straighten.
