Pause & Pose: Extended Triangle Pose

Get ready to stretch it out with resident yogi Jessie James of WeHeartYoga! This week's pose will help with stress relief and anxiety, so you can keep calm and carry on.

Extended Triangle Pose

Utthita Trikonasana

Level 1


Triangle pose strengthens your thighs knees and ankles while stretching your hamstrings, groin and inner thigh. Use this pose when you need relief from stress anxiety and low back pain.

Honest Tip:

Be smart about your front leg in this pose! To avoid hyperextending, externally rotate your front leg and slightly press your calf muscle toward your shin while you press the head of your thigh bone back. If you are having a hard time finding balance, place your back heel against a wall as a point of stability.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace.
