Do The Triangle Style Yoga at Home

Edited by AliRaza, Charmed, Eng, Anonymous and 3 others

Trikonasana is also called the triangle yoga pose. Just like its counterparts, the triangle pose consists of different yoga elements rolled into one. The main benefit of this yoga pose is strength building, especially on the lower part of the body - the feet and the legs. It can also promote flexibility.

There are two versions of this, the first being easier to attain than the second. You should start by standing with your feet slightly more than the shoulder width apart and the palms of your hands flat against the sides of your thighs.

=Things Beginners Should Know Before They Start Yoga

Just like any other new activity you would like to start, it is important that you know the basic principles. When it is your first day at the gym, you should know the basic stretching exercises, the suitable workout outfit, etc. It is the same thing in Yoga. For newbies, you should:

  • Be in proper clothing. Wear clothes that are light so you can freely move and stretch. Do not wear socks or shoes during the class.
  • Familiarize yourself with yoga terms. This is especially important, so when you do yoga with a teacher, you will know what to do. Words like "om" and "namaste" are two of the basic yoga terms.
  • Research on what would be the best yoga type for you.
  • Do not eat much before the class. You will be needing energy for the yoga classes, but you should only have something lighter.
  • While you can't drink anything during the class, you may do so before and after it.
  • Mats are provided in yoga centers, but it would be better if you invest in your own yoga mat. It is more hygienic than using a common mat.
  • Before you even pay for your membership, you should ask yourself if this is really what you want. You can often schedule a trial class for free, so you will have an idea of what the class will be like before you enroll.

Try to keep your movements fluid, think of your spine as a piece of elastic being stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Also, you must take care not to move your back too abruptly. When done properly, this is a very calming exercise, partly because it requires such intense concentration. It is also beneficial in speeding up the expulsion of toxins from the body as it tones the pancreas and kidneys, helping them to operate more efficiently.
