Parivrtta Trikonasana

Revolved Triangle Pose


Parivrtta Trikonasana is usually done after 

How to do it: (As explained as Parivrtta Trikonasana on the right side)

Tadasana (Mountain Pose), step or hop your feet about three feet apart.

Turn your right foot out so it is perpendicular to the short end of the mat. Then turn your left foot into a 45 degree angle.

Square and rotate your hips toward the right leg. Place your right hand on your right hip. Take a nice deep inhale and raise the left arm toward the sky.

On an exhale, gently fold from the waist, and place your left hand on the floor, on the outside of the right foot.

Rotate your chest towards the right. Move your right shoulder back as you rotate your right arm up toward the sky.  Look at your right thumb.


Option 1: If you can’t bring your left hand all the way down to the floor, place your hand on a block.

Option 2: You can keep your right hand on your hip if it helps you maintain balance.

Drishti (Where you should look):

Look at your right thumb.

Why we do it:

This is a great pose to strengthen and lengthen your hamstrings, quadriceps, lower legs muscles (peronius), shoulders and arms.
