STEP 1: Start with the Downward Facing Dog Pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana).
STEP 2: Move your left foot forward for about 1 meter.
Put your left hand beside your foot and carry your weight with the lower back and on the heels of your foot in front. Raise the upper part of your body until the lower back is straight. You can recognize this by a groove in the middle of the lower back. The right foot (the one at the back) rests on the floor.
STEP 4:Stretch the leg which is in front without bending the back or twisting your body. With your back straight and your right hip stretched backward, look at a point on the ground and breathe in and out quietly. Press your left hand against the heel and twist your chest to the left. Let the twisting motion involve only your upper back while your hip, lower back, legs and head remain stationary. When you cannot twist any further, stretch your right arm upward.
STEP 5: Then twist your head to the left, look upward along your outstretched arm and stretch out your neck. When you stand well aligned in this position, it will feel light.
The better you do this exercise, the bigger the triangle between your legs, arms and side will be.
Step back towards the Downward Facing Dog Pose and repeat the exercise with your right leg in front.
This is an excellent website. The animations are clear and the description of the processes involved in very lucid. Highly recommended for beginners and experienced users alike.
This is really helpful!I had never got my headstand pose correct until I saw the instruction and demonstration here
Really a great website, instructions are clear and easy.
I started practicing a few positions in this tutorial, but I''m not sure whether I should repeat the moves as many times as I can, or I should try to maintain the final position.
This is the pose I was in when I heard a "pop" in my hip region. I did this a week ago and have been icing it and taking it easy for awhile. What did a pop or strain? Any ideas on how to get better besides resting?
Thanks so much!
Its a best site ! I got to learn perfect how to do
" TRIKONASANA " From this site ! :) Thank you so much ! :) :) :)
it''s avery fantastic site.The animation expalins very clearly
Very good use of technology :) It is very useful for people anywhere in the world :)
this is about the best yoga site i have seen. But i recommend u use arrow to show breathing in/out. so as we look at it we know when to breath in during a particular pose even without reading through
I am not surprised that Lori Morgan felt a hip problem going into Triangle like this. A good teacher would never push you to do Triangle with the hand on the mat. That is more than most hamstrings (front leg) would permit. Triangle is usually taught in a quite different alignment (feet, hips and shoulders in the same vertical plane).

awesome...thanks to u.........
i have pain in left hand,arm,shoulder and leg. what kind of poses or excercise do i need to do to reduce the pain
I agree with Neil. This doesn''t seem to be a very safe or effective way to get into this pose.
@ Maria - The best way to get your foundational basics is to work with an experienced and qualified teacher. Websites, books and videos can be great tools but there is often a lot they don''t tell you and they also can''t help you if you are practicing the asanas in a way that isn''t beneficial to you.
very informative.Ur animation is xellent but learning through this way is not advisable for beginners
Excellent. This site is very clear.
Outstanding site. So easy to "understand" and to control! Congratulations.
love the animation, but would not advise that foot line up, ouch!
