Tricky Triangle

You stand on them every day, but you'd be surprised by how much you take your legs for granted. It's easy to forget their power and grace, especially if you have bad knees or tight hamstrings or achy feet. During those times when you're feeling disconnected from your lower half, Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) can help bring you back. Before you know it, you'll come to crave this elegant, powerful pose.

Trikonasana, like so many yoga poses, combines many elements in one posture. It builds strength and steadiness in the legs and feet, creates magnificent expansion and space in the torso as the arms and legs reach outward, and cultivates sama (evenness) in the body. And as you balance the effort between your arms, legs, and torso, your state of mind becomes steady and even as well. As the mind reaches the shores of the body and you turn your consciousness inward, the true experience of yoga, or union, begins.
