Asana – Parivrtta Trikonasana

Parivrtta Trikonasana or Revolved Triangle.  This pose stretches the hips and spine.  It also opens the chest.  A difficult pose, if you are not able to cross your opposite arm over the front leg you can take the arm to your ankle instead or a block on the toe side of the foot.

It’s deceptively complex and packed with challenges, benefits, and lessons. You can assume the shape, but it takes a long time before the pose actually makes sense or feel good. Awkwardness is crucial in yoga; we can begin to develop long-term commitment skills along with self-awareness and self-compassion.
