Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose)
This is a quite challenging standing pose for many as it requires both balance and twisting. If you have difficulties to find stability in the pose you can start by practicing the pose with the help of props like blocks or a wall. That way you can experience the pose and practice the actions of the body.
Here are some tips which may help you when you practice Parivrtta Trikonasana:
- Take a shorter step between the feet in the beginning if the pose is difficult.
- Use a block, a chair or a wall for stability if you feel shaky.
- Don't lose focus on you legs or feet, sometimes we're more focused on the actual twist of the upper body that we forget the base of the pose.
- Be careful not to tense your neck.
Here are some benefits from practicing the pose:
- Increased balance.
- Stretches the spinal muscles.
- Strengthens the quadriceps, knees and ankles.
- Stimulates the abdominal organs.
- Improves digestion.
Always be respectful to your body when you practice the asanas but in this pose you should be extra careful if you suffer from neck pain or lower back pain.
