Yoga Tips for Women: Triangle
The Triangle position is great for your torso and to stretch you legs. This pose is used when the body is warmed-up and is easily transitioned into from warrior two pose.
1. To position your body step your feet apart about the length of your arms or your wingspan. Keep the heel of your back leg/foot and toes pointed straight out from your body and the foot of your lead leg pointed forward.
2. Inhale your arms to shoulder height, engage your abdominal muscles, and keep your head, neck and spine in alignment. Exhaling lean from your waist to touch your toes with your fingers on the foot that is pointed straight ahead.
3. If done correctly, you will feel the oblique muscles being worked as well as your lower body being stretched. Breathing through your nose continue this pose for a minute.
4. To reposition for the opposite side, inhale and pull your upper body up with you core muscles. Keep your legs the same width apart and your hips squared with your shoulders. The only thing you need to adjust is your feet.
