Aside from an effective hamstring stretch, Extended Triangle also tones the core.
- From Extended Side Angle, lift the torso slightly, and straighten the front leg. Inhale to reach your right hand out past your right toes to lengthen your spine, and exhale to release your right hand to your knee, shin, or all the way to the floor if you can.
- Pull your right shoulder away from your hip crease to lengthen through the sides of your ribs equally.
- Gaze at your left fingertips, staying here for five relaxing breaths.
