“THE MATERIAL BODY HAS A PRACTICAL REALITY THAT IS ACCESSIBLE. IT IS HERE AND NOW. AND WE CAN DO SOMETHING WITH IT. HOWEVER, WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT THE INNERMOST PART OF OUR BEING IS ALSO TRYING TO HELP US. IT WANTS TO COME OUT TO THE SURFACE AND EXPRESS ITSELF.”
The Seated Mountain Pose or the seated Parvatasana gives a good stretch to the trunk, waist and shoulders. In Sanskrit, Parvat means a mountain and asana means a pose. In this posture, the body is stretched to look like a mountain. The seated mountain pose is good posture to release the stress in the shoulders and the trunk.
