Parvrtta Trikonasana is translated as “Rotated Triangle Pose”. This powerful and deep twisting pose can be incredibly challenging, but also very healing. Setting up the proper alignment and foundation is key to finding comfort in the pose. Once you are able to balance the effort of the pose with a sense of ease, the benefits of the pose can unfold. Remember to breath deeply in the posture; if the breath becomes too labored or difficult, back off the twist and find a sense of gentleness within your effort.
