triangle pose // utthita trikonasana
Triangle pose, or trikonasana, is a pose of beauty, strength, alignment, and opening. Coming from Warrior 2, straighten your front leg. Reaching forward through your front fingertips, and keeping a natural spine, hinge forward and down from the hips, bringing those front fingertips to your shin, a block, or the mat. Extend the top arm to the sky, creating a straight and powerful line from the tips of your right fingers to the tips of your left fingers and beyond. You will feel a sense of grounding and strength through your legs, and a beautiful opening through your spine and chest.
