STEP 1: The Dog pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana) is a good asana to start this exercise with.|
STEP 2: Start with the Dog position and put your right leg about one meter forward.
STEP 3: Put your hands next to your foot and carry your weight with the lower back on the heel of the foot in front. Raise your upper body until your back is straight. You can recognize this by a groove in the middle of the lower back. Without changing your posture and shifting your weight, twist your left foot diagonally with the heel toward the ground.
STEP 4: |
Try to support as much of your weight as possible with your back and to rest as little as possible on your right arm. With a view to the strong straining of your hips and the hamstrings, you should see to it that you are not going to try to compensate for it by twisting your legs outside. Because if you do, you lose the stretching motion in your back, allowing your lower back to sink down or to support yourself too much on your lower arm.
STEP 5: If you cannot twist any further, stretch your right hand upward.
STEP 6: Then twist your head to the right and upward, look upwards along your arm and stretch out your neck.
The better you do this exercise, the bigger will be the triangle between your leg in front, your arm and your side. When you stand well aligned in this position, it will feel light and spacious.
Step back towards the Dog and repeat the exercise with your left leg in front.
hi a-b-c- yoga people,
in relation to revolved triangle,
if you want to keep the hips square,i feel from experience to start the posture from the upright position ,not down dog...
now if your stiff.......
for those with tight hamstrings and hips,give the option of putting a block on the floor and/or placing the bottom hand on the big toe side of the foot as opposed to the little toe side.,the twist is not so intense but its enough for the stiffies
starting from the top is easier for these guys as well!
I wish I had found this site earlier. It is fantastic.
Couldn''t recall the difference between Trikonasana and Parsvakonasana till I came across this page.
