REVOLVED TRIANGLE POSE

Image

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¬†
