Triangle Pose

Starting Position
Stand tall with back straight, feet wider than the hips, and arms in line with the shoulders (like a ""T""), palms down. Turn your left toes out to the side and keep your right toes pointed forward. Lean to the left as if reaching your left fingertips toward the left wall. From there, bend at the hip, allowing your left hand to fall naturally, resting on your thigh, shin, ankle or the floor and extending your right arm straight up toward the ceiling.


Action
Breathe deeply and hold for 3-5 breaths. Repeat on opposite side.

Special Instructions
Keep your arms long and open your chest toward the wall
in front of you. Maintain length through both sides of the waist.

Muscles Stretched: Hips, hamstrings, calves, shoulders, chest
