The Triangle - Trikonasana

The Triangle – Trikonasana


The Triangle pose, Trikonasana (Tri = three, Kona = side, angle), is a standing posture providing a deep stretch to the entire side of the torso. Make sure the hips are aligned.


  1. From a standing posture, open the legs, feet parallel, width of one leg.
  2. Make a right angle with the right foot. Both heels are aligned.
  3. Extend and lift the left arm.
  4. Lean on the right side and make sure both hips are still aligned.
  5. Look up.
  6. Hold for 5-10 breaths then change side.

For a better control in the posture, slightly contract the quadriceps of the supporting leg and lock the knee cap.


  • Stretches the hips, back muscles, chest and shoulders.
  • Laterally stretches the spine.
  • Strengthen the thighs, calves and buttocks.
  • Stimulates the spinal nerves.


  • In case of neck pain, avoid looking up in the posture.
