Utthita Trikonasana ,My before and after.

Triangle pose builds strength and a sence of expansiveness,but also requires seablility and integration.like other yogis ,triangle is one of the first pose that i learn from the instructors .

when i first doing triangle ,i thought that if i could reach my hand to the floor,i was done.i was not yet aware that in reaching to the floor ,i had sacrificed the alighment of other body parts.my knee id droped ,my hips flew backward,my shoulder slumped forward.i had yet to learn to use my muscles to support me so that i had a strong foundation from which to extend.

Technique of the pose:

tuck in the tailbone and engage the gluteal muscles to maintain a firm stance.
