Anatomy of asana

There are many types of physical exercise, but the yogic system of asanas (a Sanskrit word meaning ‘steady pose’) is the most complete, benefiting far more than just the physical body. The asana emphasyzes deep breathing, relaxed movements and mental concentration.

The trikonasana is a pose that stretches the muscles of the entire body, but specially those of the outer part of the body. These include the muscles of the ankles, legs, hips and arms, making special emphasis on the thighs and anterior and interior oblique.  It strengthens the spine. This stimulates the nervous system and alleviates nervous depression. It improves digestion. It also strengthens the pelvic area and tones the reproductive organs. Regular practice will help reduce wasteline fat.

In addition to all these benefits, trikonasana is an easy way to improve balance.
