A triangle pose tutorial with Rudy Mettia. To perform safely:

  • align the right heel with the left foot, firm your things and turn your right thigh outwards
  • while exhaling extend your torso over the plane of the forward leg
  • keep both sides of the torso equally long as you lengthen out towards the back heel
  • rest the hand closest to the floor on your shin foot or block whilst breathing deep and free
  • keeping the head in a neutral position reach up towards the ceiling – if your neck permits you may gaze upwards

This pose will help:

  • stretch the legs and muscles around the knee
  • strengthen the legs, knees, ankles, obliques, back, and abdominals
  • improve digestion
  • alleviate back pain
  • stimulate the abdominal organs

Since this is a standing pose it also calls on the body’s balance. Have fun exploring this pose but make sure you enter in and out of it with grace and caution.
