Revolved Triangle Yoga Pose

Parivrtta Trikonasana

This Yoga Pose is a great one to try when you need to spice up your practice. It’s heating, cleansing, and invigorating. Make sure your hamstrings, spine, and shoulders are nicely warmed up before you start, and that you have a block nearby.

1 Begin in Mountain Yoga Pose Pose with your feet hip-distance apart. Step your left foot behind you about 3 to 4 feet and release your left heel to the ground. Adjust your feet as needed so the heels of your front and back feet are aligned.

2 Place your right hand on your right hip and inhale to lift your left arm to the sky. Draw your right hi back as you reach forward with your left hand. Twist over and down toward your right foot. Place a block on the outside of your right foot and adjust it to any height you need, then place your left hand flat on the block. (If this is too uncomfortable, move the block to the inside of your right foot instead.)

3 Rotate your chest and torso to the right, opening your right shoulder toward the sky as you draw yo right hip back. Reach your right arm straight up in line with your left and look up. If this hurts your neck, look down at the ground instead.

4 Stay here for 5 breaths, inhaling to release a little and exhaling to twist deeper from your navel.

5 Press down into your feet to rise up to stand and step forward into Mountain Yoga Pose before switching your feet.
