Revolved Triangle

Revolved Triangle will be a challenging pose to anyone working with tight hamstrings, hips, or an ITB, but it's well worth the struggle.

  • From Open Triangle, lift your torso slightly and plant your left palm on the floor next to the outside edge of your right foot. If this hurts your hamstrings, rest your hand on a block or on your shin.
  • Inhale to raise your right arm straight up, stack the shoulders, and engage your core by pulling your belly button in toward your spine. Pull your left shoulder away from your hips to lengthen through both sides of the ribs equally.
  • Stay here for five deep breaths. Frame your front foot with both hands, and press back to Downward Facing Dog. Perform Revolved Triangle on your other side for an additional five breaths, before stepping back to Downward Facing Dog.
