It's Opposite Day!!! Yippee!!!

It'sssssss opposite day! I don't like you! Hahaha!

Anyway, enough with the manicness. Could you imagine if I drank coffee? Goodness.

The Sanskrit word Parivrtta means to turn around or revolve. The poses in today's sequence will be Parivrtt-ing. The revolving or turned around versions of poses tend not be a counter-pose, just a good twist. If over twisting irritates your back, be mindful. Otherwise, twists and opposites are a great way to reinvigorate the nervous system. Actually, you might even say that they're kind of like cups of coffee.
