Marichyasana A - Marichi's Pose A
The Marichi's Pose A is dedicated to the Sage Marichi, son of Brahma, the creator. It is a fantastic stretch for the shoulder, since it creates a traction in the shoulder joint. You can either fold forward or twist back to deepen the shoulder opening. This pose is also known as Marichyasana A in the Ashtanga Vinyasa system.
