The Revolved Triangle Pose, or Parivrtta Trikonasana, is a standing yoga posture that combines elements of balance, strength, and flexibility. This pose is known for its ability to deeply stretch and open the muscles of the legs, hips, and spine, while also promoting a sense of stability and focus. The twisting motion in the Revolved Triangle Pose is particularly beneficial for stimulating the abdominal organs, aiding digestion, and enhancing detoxification. Additionally, the pose encourages a sense of grounding and mental clarity, making it a valuable addition to any yoga practice aimed at achieving both physical and mental equilibrium.

How do you do revolved triangle?

Step 1.

From Mountain Pose, step your feet about 3-4 feet apart. Turn your right foot so the toes face forward to top of the mat while your left toes are slightly inward, about 45 degrees. Keep both heels grounded and aligned.

Step 2.

Rotate your torso to face your right leg, square your hips towards the front of your mat as much as possible to keep your hips and sacrum level. Raise your arms to shoulder height, parallel to the floor, with palms facing down.

Step 3.

Inhale and lengthen through your spine. Exhale and hinge forward at the hips, reaching your left hand down towards the outside edge of your right foot (it may be helpful to elevate this hand by placing a block under the left palm.

Step 4.

Ground down into your left hand as you continue to spiral your chest forward, drawing the right hip back to revolve your left ribs under.

Step 5.

Keep your legs active and straight, and lift your right arm straight up towards the ceiling, stacking your right shoulder directly above your left shoulder.

Step 6.

Your gaze can be up at your right hand, straight ahead, or down at your left hand, depending on your neck comfort.

Step 7.

Stay in the pose for several breaths, deepening the twist with each exhale.

Step 8.

To exit, inhale and lift your torso back up, returning to standing. Bring your feet together to Mountain Pose.
