Open Triangle is a great pose that has double the stretching power: it's a forward bend plus a twist.
- From Runner's Lunge, step back to Downward Facing Dog, step your left foot forward for Warrior 1, and open up into Warrior 2.
- Straighten your left leg and turn your right toes slightly to the front of your mat, making a 45-degree angle. Lower your left hand, resting it on your left shin or a block, or place your palm flat on the floor. Extend your right arm straight up, and gaze at your right fingertips.
- Stay like this for five deep breaths. Then lift your torso up, and switch sides. Step your right foot forward between your hands, and repeat this pose on the right side.
