Pose Name

Utthita Trikonasana (oo-tee-tah trik-cone-ahs-anna)

Benefits of the Pose

~ Stretches and strengthens the legs ~ Opens chest to improve breathing ~ Stimulates abdominal organs ~ Improves sense of balance

Target Areas

Ankles | Legs | Hips | Low Back | Abdomen | Shoulders

~ Back or spine injury

How to Get into the Pose

1.  To enter triangle bring your feet about 3 feet apart on your mat.

2.  For the first side, turn your right toes to face forward. Your back foot is parallel to the back edge of your mat.

3.  Reach your arms out to the side and then pull your right arm as far forward as you can before dropping your right hand down.

4.  Bring your right hand to your bottom shin, ankle or to a block behind your bottom calf.

5.  Reach your left arm to the sky. Gaze at your top thumb. If your neck is bothersome gaze at the side or down at your toes. Stay for 5 breaths. To advance the move, your top arm can be taken over your head or wrapped around your back for a variation.  Your core can be strengthened by taking both arms forward, framing your face. To prevent collapsing into the knee joint of the bottom leg, slightly bend your knee to engage the thigh.

6.  Bend your bottom knee and use the top arm to pull yourself up. Repeat on the left side.

Finish with your mantra: "I HEART Yoga because..."
