There is Trikonasana the Triangle Pose without the twist and with a twist. In Yoga you can find twists within every category of pose: standing, seated, inverted, and reclining. They are good and cleansing poses, working deeply on the internal organs in a “squeeze-and-soak” action. As you squeeze a sponge to rid it of dirty water, the twists squeeze the abdominal organs, forcing out toxins and waste. Then when you release the twist, fresh blood rushes into those organs, bathing the cells with oxygen and nutrients. The benefits are:

  • Strengthens and stretches the legs
  • Stretches the hips and spine
  • Opens the chest to improve breathing
  • Relieves mild back pain
  • Stimulates the abdominal organs
  • Improves sense of balance 

Information from Yoga Journal




The effects of this pose are amazing. Holding Trikonasana for about 30 seconds each side actives the spine keeping it supple and long and can improve the posture. Space is created between the vertebrae and discs in the Spine with this gentle lateral flexion/twisting action. Muscles are stretched and contracted evenly. It’s very beneficial for the legs, hips, back and chest. The lymphatic system is able to drain in this pose. The pressure of the squeeze/soak on the diaphragm is also assisting the movement of lymphatic fluids, as the major lymphatic organs (the spleen & the thymus) are based around the thoracic spine area, behind the diaphragm. The twisting action is beneficial to releasing any toxins from the lymphatic system.
