The above variation of Bharadwajasana provides a good knee and hip stretch. The foot or big toe can also be held. Manipulate postures so that they have effects in a number of different areas. Bharadwaja is the name of a Vedic sage. In the original pose the upper body twists the opposite way. They are good to do in combination twisting one way then the other.
