The Revolving Half Moon Pose balancing twist involves a torso rotation which strengthens the core, cleanses the digestive organs and increases mobility in the spine. The standing leg is being toned and stretched, especially in the outer gluteal muscles and in the IT band. Be sure to engage the quadricep of the standing leg and avoid locking the knee.
