Yogasana: Triangle #atozchallenge

My theme for this year’s #atozchallenge is – 26 Yogasana. So brace yourself for 26 days of stretching, backbends and inversions, as I take you along my upside down evenings, sincerely hoping that you will find these posts helpful 🙂

Trikonasana or Triangle Yoga Pose

Trikonasana gives you a good lateral stretch, engages the core and strengthens ankle, knee and thighs. This pose is also known to improve digestion.

I haven’t been able to keep up with my practice this month. On days, when I am short of time I concentrate of doing 15 minutes of stretching. Along with SuryaNamaskar and some gentle yoga asanas, I include this pose too, to stretch my legs and arms.

As you might already know I am working on my side splits, it is a good practice to stretch my limbs everyday. Sigh! the body can be so stubborn at times. 🙂

  1. I’ve never tried Yoga so it’s interesting to read about all these moves and see you doing your Pretzel girl routine. Don’t know if I’ll ever do it but glad you enjoy it and find it relaxing. This one doesn’t look as bad as some of them like when you stand on your head.

  2. When I was a kid and learning to do Trikonasana, the aunty motivated me by saying it will help me grow tall 😉 I know I am flexible but still as tall as I was when I was 12 😀 Great pose this is for complete lateral stretch.

  3. I like doing this one. Although I’m only able to touch my knee, not my foot. But, as you said, the side stretch feels good.
    Btw, you’ve disappeared from my blog! 🙁
    Please come back! It misses you!

  4. Ah, I love this pose, really gives a good stretch! I think the block is great for those who absolutely can’t reach the floor, but for others I think a little challenge makes the pose better!

  5. I’m also finding it tough to schedule time for my yoga practice so its been surya namaskars and a few additional asanas. I like this asana too 🙂
