Triangle Pose7 min
To experience our core, we must know the periphery or boundaries of our body. This pose allows us experience contrasting forces bringing balance, energizing the body and mind as a whole. Explore this pose with greater intensity of relaxation. With effort. With ease.
How: Place a block near your front foot. Step the feet apart, back foot at 45 degrees. More advancement comes with a wider stance, so adjust accordingly. Let the pubis navigate your entry into this pose and hinge out of the front waist, tracking the spine towards paralleling the floor. Seek to deepen the crease in your front hip. Place the hand on the front shin, block or floor behind the ankle. Back foot is grounded through the outer edge, pulling the hip down and away from the ribs. Top arm reaches towards the sky or alongside the ear, pulling the low ribs away from the hip. Retain length through the low ribs space so that the breath moves freely.
