Spiritual Awakening: intermediate yoga poses | day 23

“Confine yourself to the present.”

 

Revolved Triangle Pose

Sanskrit: Parivrtta trikonasana
 

How to do it

 

From mountain pose, step your left foot back and place it flat on the floor, turned out 45 degrees. Line your feet up heel to heel, or wider for more stability and space.

 

Ground down into both feet and lift up through your thighs. Hinge forward at the hips and lengthen spine over your front thigh.

 

Release your left hand to a block placed on the outer edge of your front foot. You can also place the block on the inside of the front foot. Rotate your torso to the right. Stretch your right arm up.

The benefits

 

This balancing posture stretches your hamstrings and outer hips. Twisting promotes the overall health of the spine and engages your abdominal obliques to facilitate the twist.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
