In this video, you will learn the triangle pose, also known as Trikonasana.

Stand straight and separate your feet by 3-4 feet.

Spread your arms to either side, parallel to the ground, with your palms down.

Turn out your right foot by 90 degrees and slightly turn your left foot in.

Your body weight should be equally distributed between both your feet.

Without bending your knees, inhale as you extend your trunk, downward from your hips, as far as you can to your right side.

Drop your right arm down to your shin or further down to the floor in front of your right foot.

Make sure your body weight does not rest on your right palm.

Extend your left arm vertically up to the ceiling and turn your gaze towards your left hand.

The extended arm should not tilt back as you will lose the alignment between the hips and the buttocks.

You may also let your head stay at a neutral position to reduce the strain.

With your spine held steady and parallel to the ground, stretch as much as you can.

Breathe deeply and hold the pose for 15 seconds or as long as you can.

To release from the pose, inhale as you gradually straighten up and bring your arms to the side.

Repeat the pose on the other side.

You may place a brick below your palm if you cannot reach the floor.

Trikonasana aligns the shoulders, neck and back, and strengthens ligaments of the arms and legs.

You have now learnt Trikonasana, the triangle pose.
