The Triangle (Trikona Asana)
an excellent lateral stretch to the spine, tones the spinal
nerves, helps in the proper functioning of the digestive system.
Description of the asana
- Stand with your feet well apart (about 3-4 feet). Point your
left foot to the left, and your right foot slightly to the left.
Stretch your left arms out at shoulder level and bring the right
arm straight up, against your right ear. Now inhale.
- As you exhale, bend to the left and slightly forward to
bypass your ribs. Slide your left hand down your left leg and
hold on to the lowest part you can reach. Look out at your right
hand. Take several full breaths in this position before
releasing it. Repeat, bending to the right.
