The Power of The TRIKONASANA Poses

Yoga is like music, the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.

I believe in working evenly all on sides of the body.

Some days my body is craving for strength training, so most of the yoga pose, pilates exercises or other body weight exercises focus more on my anterior chain of the body (abs work, handstands, other inversions).

Some other days, I yearn for softness and fluidity for my body.

Back bend helps release a lot of tension in my front body.

Striking a balance between the two isn’t always easy.

But if there’s will, there’s a way.

TRIKONASANA (Triangle Pose): A strong posture with loads of benefit, but when done incorrectly can cause more harm than good, The basic alignment:

✔ Warrior II stance

✔ Back hip moves away from front leg

✔ Long neck / spine

✔ Push through front foot

✔ Raised arm strong / engaged

✔ Chest / Shoulders open

✔ Bottom arm lightly resting on leg / little pressure

✔ Light core activation

BENEFITS: Strengthens + stretches almost everything, Helps with digestion, opens up chest and shoulders. Extra hint: This pose flows well with Warrior II and Utthita Parsvakonasana.
