Your body can mirror this divine representation in trikonasana, triangle pose. Aligning the natural triangles in the sacrum, sternum and skull as you create triangles with your legs and body, and building from the three anchor points of your feet and front hand, this pose offers a beautiful flow of prana through your whole being.
Here at Hale Pule, we talk about asana with three designations: essence, anchor and strength. This is a simple tool to remember the intention of the pose, where your body is grounded and the muscles you engage for proper alignment. These components will support optimal energy flow and a sustainable practice throughout your life.
Trikonasana from the ground up
This is a great pose to include in your everyday practice as it builds strength and internal connection. Be sure to use a block at whatever height you need to keep your legs and spine fully extended – gently opening the backs of the legs will create faster progress than if you overextend.
