Triangle Pose (Trikonasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Triangle Pose

Triangle pose (Trikonasana) is one of the first yoga poses and is identified by a clear structural simplicity and the creation of several triangles with the body. The pose is achieved by placing your legs apart, turning your right foot 90°, leaning forward with your left leg, and stretching your arms parallel to the floor. Rotate your torso and extended arms upward. Your arms should now be perpendicular to the ground with your upper hand open and pointing to the sky and the lower hand touching the ground. The Triangle Pose engages nearly ever part of the body and energizes by opening the hips, and stretching the legs, chest and shoulders.
