Triangle Pose (Trikonasana)

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

Extended Triangle Pose is a standing, beginner posture that stretches a good portion of the body including the legs, hips, groin, knees, shoulders, torso, ankles, chest and spine! Extended Triangle Pose has many benefits such as improving digestion, relieving stress, and can help Yogi’s with flat feet, osteoporosis and sciatica. Yogi's that are experiencing low blood pressure, diarrhea, or headaches use caution.

To do Extended Triangle Pose, begin in Mountain Pose and step the feet about 3-4 feet apart. Next, raise the arms out to the sides and parallel to the floor with the palms facing down and the shoulder blades down the back. Align the heels with the front foot facing forward and the back foot at a 90 degree angle. Next, extend the torso over the front leg bending from the hip. Rest the hand closest to the front leg either on the ankle, shin or thigh and reach the other arm to the sky. Be mindful to keep the torso lifted and engaged.
