Yoga Day Countdown: Day #8

Asana #3: Trikonasana (Triange pose)

After the Tadasana (Mountain pose) and Katichakrasana (Standing Spinal Twist), this is the third asana in our selected progression.

Trikonasana

 

How it’s done

Stand straight with your feet 30 – 40 cms apart. Then place your right hand on the side of the right knee and raise the left arm upward. Slowly exhale, bending the body towards your right side and try to touch your right foot with you right hand. Your left hand should be parallel to the ground (you can bend your knee if uncomfortable). Repeat the sequence on the left side.

The video below provides a good demonstration.
