Strike A Yoga Pose: Triangle Pose

The Triangle pose works your hamstrings and the sides of your belly, not to mention your balance.

Want to try it? Here's how:

  • Stand at the front of your mat in Tadasana (mountain pose) and step open with your right foot, so there's about 3 feet between your heels.
  • Turn your right toes out 90° so they're parallel with your mat, and turn your left toes in 45°.
  • Keeping both legs straight, reach your right arm out as far as you can, and then let it fall anywhere on your leg.
  • If it feels comfortable to stretch your hamstring, place your hand flat on the floor in front of or behind your leg.
  • Keep your left hand on your hip, or raise it straight up towards the ceiling.
  • Gaze down at the ground, and once you feel stable, you can look up at your left hand.
  • Stay here for 5 breaths, working on lengthening both sides of your ribs equally.
  • After 5 breaths, press into your feet and lift your torso up.
  • Rotate your feet to the left and repeat on the left side.
